on my studio table

 |  April 25, 2014

Slowly getting back into the studio after being on vacation. First thing I did though was do a complete reorganization of my studio. Sometimes doing that helps create a new energy for me.


What's that pink and purple doing in my painting?! Trying something different. Feeling uncomfortable. Ha! #workinprogress #studiotable #art
what’s that pink doing in there?! Not usually part of my palette

I work on several panels at the same time. All in varying degrees of done-ness. I actually finished a painting before vacation, but haven’t had time to post about it. I used to be able to do work, especially computer work, writing, documentation, etc. after the kids went to bed, but lately I have really been too tired. Wasn’t vacation supposed to cure that? Ah well. I have something in the works coming up, so I really need to hunker down, pull up the reserves, and get some paintings done.

    I think a little bit of reorganizing always helps with the flow of things, your studio has lovely light and a lovely work mate! I'm not a pink person for the most part, has to be the exact deep hue, but I agree that you should keep this one ... I always love seeing your work in the making.

      I'm not a pink person either! but the pink is staying in bits and pieces here and there on the painting. at least for now. :)

    My painting mojo has been well and truly absent lately. I feel a need for some studio rearranging coming on. Thanks for the inspiration.

      It always helps me, hope it helps you get your mojo back!

    Pink is totally not my pallet either but I do love it when it's used in other peoples work...strange, I know. Can't wait the see the next piece but it will have to wait until I return from holidays. Gives me something to look forward to. I continue to be inspired by your studio table postings...please keep doing them.

      Thanks Leah. I'll try. I haven't had as much studio time as I'd wish, but hopefully i'll get to post something this friday.

    I agree that re-organizing the studio tends to bring in new energy, maybe as a result of clearing the old energy out. I love seeing these snippets of your work in progress, but of course, they make me want to see more!

      Thanks Sharmon. I think you're right- about the exchange of energy. I'm hoping though that I don't get the urge to reorganize again soon. It's such a holy mess during the process of moving things around.
