I have a new understanding of why studio spaces often look messy. I have been taking courses in a variety of painting styles and a variety of mediums. Each course requires a few new supplies and they need to have a home. I have also found that I really like having the supplies easily available by being where I can see them.
Over the last few days I have been thinking about this dresser I have in my studio space. I love the colour and the storage but it didn’t provide the surface that I wanted.
We have had a table in our living room that was more in line with what I imagined, so today I decided to make the switch. It can always go back if I don’t like it, right?
This is how it now looks in the living room. It looks a little busy to my eye but I can tweak that over the next few days. Especially house cleaning day. I don’t know what it is about cleaning, but I end up rearranging and finding homes for things when I do it.
The studio now has a surface with more potential storage underneath. I think it will work much better.
And do you remember this canvas that I put leftover oil paint on?
Here it is now. I think it is going to be a landscape with a church. In kind of an abstract style. But who knows?
