Let's kick things off with a painting (because it can't be all fun and games):
"Blueberries and Water"
8 x 8 inches, oil on canvas
....And now, ladies and gents - step right up, no tickets required for this guided tour of my studio!
Can't you just hear the slow creeeeaaak of the door opening...?
Ok, there's no freak show or tunnel of love in this post. It's a blog carnival, in which a group of artists get together to post about the same topic. In this case: our studios.
I've shared pictures of my studio before, but here's what it's looking like this week. Two easels, tons of plants, random still life stuff everywhere, and paintings all over the walls.
You can see canvases stacked and leaning on both sides of my cabinet. The left is for blanks, the right is for paintings. I find this to be a *sophisticated* yet intuitive method of organization.
Below you can see some of my happy little plants. Correct levels of Oxygen and Co2 in an art studio is critical to the creative process!
I fool myself that they take my fume exposure down a notch as well.
Below I attempted a panorama of a painting-in-progress on the easel. Left to right, top to bottom: My still life setup with painting, my palette, my painting table (and glass bottle collection), my paintbrushes, and a jumble of paints. The last two I'm not too proud of, but the system does contain some cryptic orderliness, and it's been working for me so far!
