Studio Space

I spent Sunday working on my creative space.  I haven't had a space to call my own in over a year.  It feels good to have a room to call my own again.

Blank Slate - not the most flattering or best photo, but you get the idea

The mirrored closet doors have plans...they are moving out this afternoon.  I sold them.  There was just no way I was gonna create in a space with these HUGE mirrors staring at me.  Once they move out the closet on the other side will be getting a makeover.  Hubby is going to install shelves for all my supplies and projects, so they have a happy home.

The white walls will go, I haven't decided on a color as of yet, but I have pile of color chips to start the brainstorming with.  The valances will stay, I made them ages ago for a different room in a different house, but I love them in my new well lit studio space. 

I need to get off my lazy toosh and get some prints and canvases of my photography made to decorate my new space with.  I also need to get a could of shadowbox style frames for a few things.  I have some mementos that need a home to be displayed and shared. 

Nothing like starting with a blank canvas.  This will be the first studio space that I will have the time and money to customize as I go.  The first studio I will paint and the first studio I will spend the long dark winters in.  Happy creating!

House in Summer

I snapped this shot the other night.  I've had requests from friends and family to see the new house during the green Alaskan Summer, so here it is...

Things are progressing and I'll try to work on inside shots this week.  I have hung some of the curtains, added some decor and have mostly unpacked the main portions of the house. 

My studio, remains a mess!  It's always a work in progress, but this time I'm building from the ground up and there is a lot of work that must be done.  The flip side is that I can't wait to have things set up...creative projects are dancing in my mind and the first will most likely be curtains for out bedroom.
