studio tour

I'm always interested to see where other artists work, aren't you? The idea to post photos of my studio motivated me to tidy up for the year of painting ahead. If you post photos of where you make art, please let me know. Happy painting!

My wet-media painting station with Soltek easel.

Studio entry.

Desk and computer area as well as my collection of art by other artists, family treasures and photos.

Flat files for paper storage with framed painting storage below

Paintings awaiting framing are hung from pants/skirt hangers

Pastel station with my Mabef easel.

My cozy gas fire. Paper mache masks were made by my son when he was in grade school.

Round oak table top and big work table with mat cutter.

Barbara! I blundered upon your blog and I'm so glad that I did! Love your studio tour -- what a great space with lots of light and lots of thoughtful organization in the layout!

I especially like the Snowfall painting below. Great shadows in just the right value! I look forward to seeing your posts in the days ahead. Katherine

Your studio looks great, Barbara. I'm envious of all your space. I'm afraid my whole house has become my studio. I work in a spare room which is pretty small, frame and store books in my bedroom, computer downstairs in my kitchen and store artwork throughout the house. If I had everything in one room I might never come out!

Wow - so well organised. I'm drooling over your flat paper storage and framed storage area!
