This week, I had my studio professionally photographed by local photographer Kyle David Jones. Several months ago you may remember me mentioning about converting the playroom that my kids had outgrown into a home studio space. It has taken me several months to get the room in working order and just so you know, I moved a lot of the day to out in order to get the pristine shots that Kyle took. While it will be a few weeks until I have his shots, I took a series with my iphone so that I could share with you here on the blog.
I have to say, I was so happy once I set up my art and photography. It is amazing the change of mood you can create when you place things around you that you love. In this photograph you can see where I work on my computer. I am surrounded by things that I love, a picture my daughter painted, sticky notes from both my children, a picture of my grandmother and small pieces that have special meaning to me.
This shot is of my main desk area where I paint and assemble all my products. It is usually a sea of “mess” although I still know exactly where everything is…I think creative minds work in that way, don’t you?
Finally, I have a solid black chalkboard wall on one side of my studio that I can use for inspiration, hanging art and displaying pieces I have finished or that are in progress. I like the contrast of the black behind many of my mixed media works because they make the color “pop”
What are some of your favorite studio pieces? I’d love to know…
Have a great Thursday everyone.
