Anyway, for years I've been supplementing my income by being commissioned for paintings and drawings. I needed a place to work, so I set up an "Art Studio" at my house, which really means "The half of my bedroom sectioned off with a chest of drawers and an art supply shelf." It's been wonderful.
As I mentioned in my last post, I'm getting married (in about 6 weeks!). This means that I will be moving out of my parents house and making a new home with Michael. It occurred to me that perhaps I should document this lovely work space before I pack it all up and set it up completely different in a new place. After all, that's what I did with the lovely studio space UConn gave me senior year. Enjoy:
|Books and natural light are important.|
|My dad built me a book shelf that I promptly filled with my stash of filled sketchbooks, expensive magazines (Juxtapoz and Hi-Fructose are my favorite ones to splurge on), Art History books, Art Philosophy/Religion, Art Business, and other must-haves. This is the shelf about a year ago.|
|And this is the shelf today. Look, I've already started to pack!|
|This wall usually has brainstorming clippings from whatever my current project is. But the stiletto stays constant because that's ALWAYS inspirational.|
|My messy stash of supplies. Dividing the room with furniture helps me play a psychological trick on myself. I have a bedroom and I have an art studio, and they are 2 different spaces for 2 different purposes.|
