The past 3-4 days I spent re-arranging one half of our apartment. Starting in September I won't have a studio space at school anymore, and all the things that are currently there have to come home/ I need a SPACE to work in, (and to think up and create my thesis.) I was not happy the way the current set up was, eventhough I had a whole room to myself, it was very cramped already and because there is a tree in front of the window, very dark. Way too dark for me to work in. So it was time to find a solution. :) I think we found a great one. we turned my former studio into a double office, scott and I share that big room with both of our office desks and it's working quite well. And my art work space is now where his old office space was. Because there is a big window (which isn't blocked by a tree) and the front balcony door, I have a LOT OF light in there especially until around 2 in the afternoon, then it gets a bit darker, but still no were near as dark as in the other room. I also wanted to be able to easily pin things to the wall/ pin paper/ canvas to the wall andwork on it directly. So I went to homedepot and bought 2 8x4 foot panels of insulation (pressed paper) fiber board, attached it to 3 of the walls and painted it white. Now I just have to bring home the rest of my supplies from my school-studio. And I'm ready to roll.
Storage space, I am going to put up at least one more shelf in there, and I sort of created like a luggage net, that keeps my million portofolios in place.
The big 8x4 panel.
Shelf purely for supplies.
my drawing table, with pinboard next to it that is dedicated purely to collecting ideas for the thesis and images/artists that inspire me.
I also did the first 2 etches on the Noah litho, this is the stone lithograph that I started drawing over a year ago, and never finished until this summer. Tomorrow I am actually printing/editioning it. Hope all goes well. Then I can finally put a new image on that stone. :)
