So here it is finally an update on the new Studio Office! My nephew moved out a few months back and I was finally able to set up a Studio Office space. I have been dreaming of this space for years. Of Course my idea of the design changed throughout those years. I don't think I ever would have done the lime green walls a few years back. I do love the color of the walls though.
As you notice the floors are a bluish color. I took a blue pigment dye and put drops of it into first a concrete sealer, but it wasn't coming out the way I wanted. Then I got a can of water-based polyurethane and put the blue tint in that and just kept applying it until the can was done. I love the color but feel like it could have used a couple more coats of the polyurethane.
When you first walk in you can see the art carts I got from Ikea a few years back. There is my painting of Hedwig and a few paintings behind the easel. Oh and yes that is a zombie deer with a skeleton on its back (I told you I loved Halloween, this kind of stuff is scattered throughout the house). The flower that you see there my Mom made out of plastic soda bottles. I love how whimsical it is!
This is a picture of my desk/table. I wanted a counter-height table so that I could stand when I got tired of sitting for to long.
In this corner are a couple of my drawer units I got at Ikea. I love these drawers. In the very corner there you can see a mess of stuff. I have quite a few blank canvases that I need to get started on painting!
My painting table. I still haven't gotten to far on that painting I started months ago. I can't seem to get the background the way I want it and I got discouraged.
Another view of the painting table from further away. I love the big window that lets so much light into the room. As you can see with the shelves on the back wall I still have some room to grow.
These are the shelves hanging above my table desk. I still have a bit of room on these to grow also. The 3 small prints on the top shelf I got when we were in New Orleans over Christmas last year. I do not remember the name of the artist and wished I would have grabbed one of his cards.
Of course a studio tour wouldn't be complete without the Murphy dog making an appearance. Let me know what you think and I would love to see pictures of your art spaces!
