I don’t know if I’ll do What’s On Your Workdesk? Wednesday
as a regular thang, but here I am on humpday wanting to post about
my new space and I happen upon this weekly challenge…..
When not painting
I wish that were so….
Okay, back to reality. When not working in a business I actually like which is
conservation of objects, above, where I also get to paint using traditional finishes and oils, I paint for myself, mostly watercolors, ink sketches, and the occasional throwback acrylic. I paint on breaks, sketch on breaks, and can get to the studio early to paint
seven days a week to get in a few hours before the “real” day starts.
Last month we blew out two walls in
our space in four days and made the upholstery/textile room one BIG space.
I now have 12-feet of desk space that is totally dedicated to paint, WOW! It means I have a larger main desk space where everything is within reach, below. Right, the secondary space, where I sit on the ball and get a bit of a workout too… I have a tall rolling cart for extra journals and shellac and STUFF — and nearby I still have a shelf of large paper and my own handmade paper. I have a second great window view, right, of trees and the northwest hills and the old Montgomery Ward building.
A glimpse down the whole long space, where you can see my textile work area next to Mitchell, then the upholstery area where we can now have two projects on the tables
(I came so close to saying “on the boards” a throwback to my architectural days), the cutting tables, and at the end, the woodworking area with hand-tools and glue up stand.
And every paint studio needs a rock-and-roll guy….
