I think most people believe that an artist studio should be romantic, should be gorgeous, should be overlooking a farm or a pond and these days should even be feng shui correct. I must confess, although I dream of this type of studio, it is not my studio. I have a little studio envy. I look around at the blogs and everywhere I turn is a magazine-style studio. They say in life we must enjoy what we have, be in the moment, not live our lives in the hopes of one day having what we don't have. I have decided to break free of studio envy and bring purrrfect love into my studio. This is my new studio-cat-in-training, she has been exploring the studio, and trying to mark her territory, oh no she has hijacked my drafting chair. Meet the Queen of Sheba. You can call her Sheba or you can even call her the future queen of Sue's studio.
My studio is a place I escape from the world around me and put myself into what I'm creating. I might not have a picturesque surrounding, but my pictures are in my head and they come out onto the paper. It's a good thing my studio doesn't look too good or I would not want to do much work.
I would just want to hang around, probably just enjoy the glamorous studio. Having a simple functional studio can be a good thing!!
This pencil holder is my new favorite studio decor. This was a home made gift from my sweet son. What more could a mom want for her studio?..........
Paint & lots of refrence books !
