|I have a HUGE desk/work table. The canvas laying on it is 40x40 inches. It still isn't big enough through.|
I have been writing this blog for ten years.... Lets just let that sink in for a mo shall we? I sort of dropped off writing here because it feels like instagram is easier. It is easier. But its not the same. And you know what? I miss blogging, like the old fashioned blogging. Not the sports car with a naked model on it version of blogging that it seems like blogs have to be today. My version of blogging. A regular like suv nice car type thing with a normal lady driving it zoned out a little and talking to herself. ok? Lane change with no blinker:
Can I call it my new studio if I moved in the summer time and now its almost spring time? Lets not overthink it. Yes I can. Despite the fact that I have finally (I am almost positive) decided what the future of my studio is going to look like and it isn't in this building, I am very happy here for now.
|Is nice and big and bright, even though this pic is lousy.|
|This is what my studio actually looks like, no fluffing it up to look all pretty. I guess its pretty neat, but thats how I need it to be in order to work. I should have fixed the blinds though. Ouch.|
|I have so much more room for large paintings than I did at my old place. I like to be organized.|
|My trusty ol easel. I should name her I think. |
|I know you are wondering about my white furniture. Yes, it has paint on it, but only a tiny bit. You would expect more. Also those huge shelves are amazing, I bought them form a warehouse supply place and have three scars, major ones, on my hands from hurting myself on them through the years. |
I have so much light, plenty of space, I am in the same building as my dear friend Jessica
, its close to my house and I love being in Decatur. There are downsides to this place but I feel so happy every time I walk in the door! I never did throw a party here like I thought I would. Maybe a sample sale like we did when Alia was born, that was great.
The light looks incredible & yes you should throw a party...better late than never! I live in Canada, if I was a little closer I would come & visit for sure. For your easel why not "Bluth" I think you are a fan of Arrested Development if I'm correct. My husband & I have watched that box set too many times, when's the movie coming out!ReplyDelete
Holly that is hilarious! Yes, I love love love AD. I am thinking "stair car" or "George Michael" or "illusion Michael!" oh boy. I am going to need to re-watch some of that mess. Thanks for your comment!Delete
So glad to see you back to blogging! I love your writing style and am glad you are sticking around! One of the only ones I still enjoy following. The studio looks amazing...can't wait to hear what your future plans are though! Must be exciting to feel settled on something.ReplyDelete
Thank you! I write how I talk, its the only way to roll. Yes! I hear through the grapevine that instagram is about to change, and it made me realize how much I miss blogging. Its just better damnit! Thanks for your comment.Delete
Blogging is totally better. I feel like a cop out at times, sharing squares of life with very little conTEXT. But it is so frickin' convenient. Anyway, I think I've read your blog for pretty much the whole decade. I have dreams about which paintings I want to buy when I sell enough of mine - buuuut anyway, one nickel at a time!ReplyDelete
Love seeing this space, love reading/hearing your voice behind it all...
Yay! The blog is back! Love reading your ruminations and seeing what's going on in your studio... and in your brain... :) Thanks for the studio tour.ReplyDelete
ps... what is going to change with instagram? Always a little late to any party, I was just about to dig into that platform... pero, es no bien ahorita? Thanks for any info!ReplyDelete
