My studio...Come on in

I have been doing artist intros on Tuesdays but I thought I would take a week off and show you this.
Finally, other rooms were painted, furniture moved and I have a dedicated studio!
This is the room that was slated for a library but our snail's pace and a stepson needing it as a bedroom kept that from happening. The room was meant to be dark and moody with silk curtains and portraits of ancestors. The ancestors are still here no books, moodiness, or dark is part of the picture just now.

I really don't want a messy studio but isn't that what everyone expects?
These photos are moments after move in yesterday.

The Chinese rug has to go or it will end up looking like that towel.

Some works in progress among finished pieces
The room gets great light all day. My studio time will be every morning once school starts and the a.m.light is best.
I hope to show the room off a little better soon.

How wonderful you have a space of your own to be creative and free!

I believe it is important to create in a space that you love, and that you decorated to your taste! I love the colour of the walls and also I love those words like "moody", or "ancestors"!!
Can't wait to see it finished!!

How exciting....and you need this. I expect an artist's studio to be white walls, unfinished wood floors, and messy...a creative mess of goodness. A coffee station would be great, too.

You definitely need this room Kerry, I bet once all said and done about your studio, your creative juices will flow more and hence, a lot more beautiful paintings to share with us and enjoy!
