My Space

I am so lucky to have a room that I love, in which to make art.  Last Friday, we had shutters installed and they are great!  My room is upstairs and I have a big window facing north and a smaller window facing south.  I have a large table (Jim's mom's old dining room table) for my mat cutter, flat files in a corner, and enough room for an easel, a flat table for painting, my "thinking chair" and a lovely drawing table we bought at an estate sale.  I have a dot for music and a laptop for reference photos.   Oh and, of course, there is always a cat or two two keep me company.  Rosie doesn't do stairs, so she doesn't join me when I'm painting or drawing.  Note that Cary Grant has jumped into his carrier.  Now if we were actually headed to the vet, there would be a mad scramble to pounce on him and put him in the carrier with absolutely no cooperation on his part:)  I always enjoy seeing other studios, so I thought you might like to see my art room.  I go barefoot all the time- my feet love the wood floor:)  The walls are the palest lavender - almost white.
Here are a few photos.

I love seeing others' work space and by the way, i LOVE your thinking chair. It all looks great and I remember the days I use to have room to do things like that. Since we sold we have downsized, sigh.

Hi, Sandy! I'm so happy that you like my chair. I thought it was super cute when I first saw it and it is really comfortable, too! I know what you mean about downsizing.

Oh Candy, enjoy that wonderful bright space. I like everything about it...
Your tables, chair, art corner, everything.

Thanks, Barbra Joan! I feel good just being in the room. When we were going to paint the room, I had the color in mind. I will be forever grateful to this young man at Home Depot who introduced us to this series of "white" paints. The colors are very light, but they're not really white - exactly what I wanted for the walls.

Yes, it's amazes me that there are more variations of the 'color' white than anyone can imagine. Hey thanks so much for the visit ...

Fantastic! I'm envious you have a room dedicated to art! LOVE and am coveting that cabinet of drawers to lay things flat. Someday! Anyway, congratulations! Oh, and that chair is adorable! :)
