New Studio Space!


Most of the remodeling that we have been suffering through for the past 4-5 months is nearly over — except for finishing a number of details, and getting my new attic office fully functioning — another month maybe for the latter, and I’m giving myself until the end of 2010 to complete all the detail work.  The contractors are mostly done, though, and we have some new spaces, new lighting, and I have been able to convert my former office/studio into a full-time, full-space studio.  Woo-hoo!

It’s a little Martha Stewart looking, since it was my former office, and I didn’t really change the decor; I’m just working on finishing it the way it started, and making it work as a studio.

I have some previous office furniture to sell, and once that’s done, I will have a empty space in front of the front windows, and I will be able to create my encaustic table — the door table-top you see in the picture above, to which I will add 2×4 legs on casters and a couple of storage shelves underneath — maybe with a cutout for my knees, so I can do some drawing on it.

I’m also thinking of creating a floorcloth out of painter’s canvas, so I can stop getting paint all over the floor.

So, I continue to make adjustments as I work in my semi-new space.  See a small gallery of photos of my studio, with some changes in progress:

At moments of great enthusiasm it seems to me that no one in the world has ever made something this beautiful and important.

Comments on My Paintings
  • Your painting reminds me of Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower paintings. Although your painting reminds me of her work, it does bring about a different kind of experience. Her flowers to me are beautiful. But they also seem reserved, formal, almost abstract, not romantic in anyway, not even alive but more like something plucked and then frozen in time. Your work has some of the same shapes, and yet the relationship of the shapes to each other is different and not at all formal like O’Keeffe’s. There is more movement in your painting, more energy, more aliveness. (I’m not taking your title into consideration.) To me, I’m looking deep into the heart of a living flower.
