It wasn’t until recently I finally got more storage for my new studio, had a big tidy up and all my materials are now stored away safely. My studio is a studio! I am so thrilled to have a lovely space to run my business and paint beautiful things.
I have two tables: one as a general desk and one as a painting table for bigger, messier painting jobs. As I paint from images (or still life), I have an old laptop to use on my painting table. I love that trusty chair my mum gave me when I had my studio shed, which I miss a lot (apart from spiders that wouldn’t leave!).
I love that my painting table is a drop-leaf table so I can put it “away” when I am not painting. I really need to get it a table cover as it is very old – it used to belong to my grandma I think and I was given it by my mum. Since it is becoming my favourite table in the whole world, I really should start looking after it.
I aim to fill my studio with indoor plants and these two babies are just a starting point. I have several downstairs in the living room/ dining room and kitchen already.
I am still figuring out where my things go in these two shelves. There are spaces for more and I plan to fill them with my poor old cameras (I have about 12) that has been left in the box since I moved in last March. I only have my two most used cameras out. The books need to be reorganised too. If there is still enough space, I’d love to take my unused notebooks out of my drawers so I’ll remember to use them rather than buying more.
I am excited that there is plenty of wall space so I can put up a lot of artwork (I already have quite lots waiting to be hung up!) and making my space even more beautiful.
Do you have a studio? Show me!
