Salon Style

Let me start by saying my studio is crowded!!! But until we get our barn situation worked out (the roof leaks, the back wall is caving in, it's a favorite hide-out for neighborhood cats & chicks & ducks) the studio will stay crowded. I have piles and piles of books I don't want to get rid of but I just don't have space for right now. But I can't put them in the barn until we have water-tight storage.

So in the studio they will stay. But still, I wanted to get organized.

I wanted the works-in-progresses up where I can see them. Keeps them fresh in my mind and thinking about what I wanted to do with them.

I wanted the finished pieces visible. Keeps me conscience about my evolving style.

So I decided to hang everything thru out the studio salon style.

This is the back wall, most visible from the living room. (note: the studio is open to the living room so things have to have a little bit of order.)


A close-up with a mix of w-i-p and finished pieces (plus one soon-to-be-published piece)

a close-up of 3 of my favorite crows: Grow, Snow & Show


The crows at a distance. Behind the curtain? Boxes and boxes of mixed media and found objects.


My lovely chair. I'm so it love with that chair sometimes I sit in it simply to sit :)


a close-up of some 3D w-i-p. There's 2 dolls on the table, 2 paper mache' pieces and 3 clay sculptures. Oh yeah, and one mixed media book (the copper mesh piece).


Same view, far away. A few more paintings are visable, including a few more crows.

Thanks for the tour of your studio space. I love that wall of art. But what I really want to see is what is behind that curtain - LOL!
