My Studio


The headline is a bit of a joke. I've been looking at other blogs with pictures of cute little cabins in the backyard, full of windows and light with ivy climbing the sides, where the artist can be an artiste. What I have here is a corner in the basement with a few shelves and a card table. But, on the plus side, the basement is three-fourths finished, a project we started and abandoned more than a year ago (and, if I had to bet, one that will remain undone until some time far in the future when we sell the house).

My basement also has a number of windows and a rarely used air hockey table that I can spread things out on (when I was growing up, it was a rarely used pool table; every basement needs something like it). So I can't complain. I don't imagine I'll ever get a little freestanding studio of my own, but if I can train my kids not to set their Nintendo controllers down in the middle of my work bench, at least I'll have my own little corner.

....And, on an unrelated note, here's a picture of a new necklace I finished this week. Why not?

Shazam! I love that wall color. My former basement was lime green...kept the gloom away.

Your new necklace is divine

A couple of years ago I finally got a real room for a studio. I filled it with ikea wardrobes...with wire shelves, pullouts, drawers, hanging racks. A friend came over the other day, looked at our pool table and said...looks like you are overflowing...

Love your new necklace!

Your studio looks ok to me. Not so different to mine really. I adore your new necklace!

Well, I did have to jetison a few boxes of crap to shoot this photo. Don't you always wonder what's behind the camera?

looks like a fun space all the same. I have dreams about having a studio space even if it is a small one
