In The Studio

Yesterday I was painting when all of a sudden my surroundings came into focus and I couldn't get past all the mess.  That's how it is with me . . .  a build up until I just can't stick it anymore. 
Fortunately I don't have any 'before' photos but after a little rearranging of furniture and sorting out I felt as though I could finally get back to painting again. 
I know some of you will be looking at these a little confused and thinking "Wait, these are the 'after' photos?" but this is pretty organized for me.  I can't work on one thing at a time, I have to have multiple pieces on the go.
I was really pleased to get some new paintings finished.  They are currently down in the basement getting their final coats of varnish and I'll be back to share them with you once they are dry.
What creative projects have you been working on lately?


  1. Congratulations on a job well done!
    I envy your organizational skills.
    ; )

  2. I tried a multi-media painting I guess you would call it. I plastered some thing paper on a canvas, used some Gesso, painted and varnished. I kinda like it.

    I do like yours.

  3. Delete "thing" or add "kind of" in its place...I must proof read more!

  4. Oh I LOVE your room and your walls. I could stand and just stare at everything - so cool! I sent your link to an artist friend who longs for her own corner to paint and work in.........maybe it will inspire her!

  5. I totally love it and understand the picked up....
    My after would be messy than yours!
    I am so jealous...
    I am buying my family pizza, when I decide to reorganize mine!
    Thank you for sharing~

  6. oo nice peek at some of your work in progress as well...and i feel you...occassionally i get to that point that i have to bring the world into order so my muse can breathe just a bit....

  7. I feel this is quite organized - what an inspiring room!

  8. Hey, can you come over and do my studio....I still haven't gotten it cleaned up and tidy. Look forward to seeing your new "art".

  9. Creative? Well, my scarecrow fell over and I attempted to right her -- not very successfully. Does that count? :)

  10. You always amaze with your artistic output. I love your studio.

  11. It looks like an organized mess, smiles ~ Very nice to see your work place ~ I wish I am working on an artistic piece but its all about words for me ~
