I saw these somewhere today and I thought why have I not tried painting nutcrackers before ? So I did! I made grave attempts at staying loose… How do you think I did? Honestly.
As a kid I used to go to summer camp on a farm, living in the city it was the first exposure I had to rural life, farms and animals. As I recall it encompassed about 265 acres of land (at the time) … and we had an Art Workshop… I loved that place. I can still see it in my mind. BIG art tables in the middle of the room, lined up end to end – maybe 3 or 4? and Tons of supplies in cabinets and on shelves around the perimeter of the room… Those are some of the happiest memories from my childhood.
I had a dream …to create a place like that, which would be FUN to come to…. with lots of art supplies to make anything you want, and a FUN place to create art in. …
Uh-oh… I think I’ve done it! Here are some pictures of my studio. It’s Bright, It’s Colorful, and it is definitely FUN! Truly my home-away-from-home. I do tend to rearrange many times per year, so I will need to post new pictures of the latest re-do, but I’m so glad to have been able to bring my childhood back to life.
I look forward to sharing this space with you . .
Some days you have the best of intentions.. You might even have an inkling as to what you want to work on.. But sometimes it just doesn’t turn out right. We need to be OK with that. That way we can try again and and hopefully the next time it will come out closer to the way we want it.. And if it doesn’t, well you know the old adage… If at 1st you don’t succeed, Chuck it and try again.
Excuse me… but where did the 1st half of November go? You know the phrase Short Sheeting…. I think we are getting Short-Monthed! I certainly don’t know where 2 full weeks of this month have gone… but I do see these new things in my studio ….hmmm
Well there are more but I would rather you come see them in person… my studio will be open for Small Business Saturday (27th) from 11am – 3pm…Also available before that by appointment…
