I have had my studio now for six months and I have had many adventures and experiments. Ideally, I would like to have it attached to my home so that I could pad out there any time of day or night in my pajamas and get my hands in the paint...but believe you me...I am happy to have a wide open place to work on a number of things at once and to be able to leave my stuff out when I am done, and a place to store my stuff when I do need to put it away...
The piece at the top of the page - I know it does not look like much - is actually getting used now. I am creating a collaged, crazy quilt type piece (I think) out of spirit card papers. I finally got my 110lb index paper (and when you buy it by the case it does in fact weight 110lbs - another learning experience).
I have rarely had two days in a row at the studio. When I have, I have felt very productive...
Getting there is tough. Staying there is not. Three and four hours will fly by and I will find myself leaving because the rest of my life requires attention, not because I want to leave.
All this talk makes me want to get dressed and go. I also have 400 pounds of laundry to do. OK, the first thing is to close the lap top and do SOMETHING.
till later - G
