My studio has changed a lot over the last few years. It really is a consistent work in progress.
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know just how much I adore painting outside. Brian got me this fabulous art cart (by stanley) so I can wheel my art supplies wherever I wish.
But when the weather changes, that’s when I seem to switch my studio from room to room around the house.
I am lucky enough to have a spare bedroom that I could use as my studio. But I always find myself most inspired in the kitchen.
So, this year, I finally gave in and made my kitchen my studio.
I’ve found that I just am not inspired to paint if it can’t be outside or near a super bright window with the sun shining in. So I’ve sent up everything in the brightest space in the house.
Ever since I came back from teaching at Lucky Star Art Camp in October (where I painted at a table), I’ve found myself painting at my kitchen table instead of on the floor too.
Sort of a new evolution of everything. So here’s what my studio looks like these days…
Whenever I create, it’s really all about organized chaos. I know I hate picking up, yet I always make a mess. And I get frustrated when I can’t find the art supplies I need.
So, I have bins and boxes and cups for everything. That way, everything has its place, but it only takes minutes to put it all away.
What’s your painting space like?
