My Studio - Getting Organized!

For a long time I have managed to stay half-way organized with my fine art, Barbie furniture and craft projects. But things went awry as they often do when space and organizational challenges arise and I was desperate to get my act together as much as I could. Painting is a wonderful, exciting and creative adventure. It was time I created a wonderful, exciting place that I could be creative in.

A corner in my sunroom had served as my art space for a long while but that day the bookshelf, makeshift table and easel looked just sad and out of place. It was time for a change - a change that meant a more creative atmosphere to work in with more organization and definitely more light!



So I went to work. The dark curtains came down and were replaced with light and cheery sheers and pinwheel design curtains. The old table and chairs went out and two new light colored wood tables along with four modern chairs took their place. For organization, I attached my display racks against the wall, changed my tired bookshelf for a newly painted one, invested in some drawer cabinets and purchased the sweetest little turquoise rolling shelf to hold my mason jars of brushes, pens and pencils, etc.


The final touch was attaching a line of wire across each cornice board with clips to hang my recent works.


Chelsea

Here's my newest painting. I've named her "Chelsea."
