New studio phase

It's been about a year since I first cleaned up the unused garage just off our house so it might become my studio.  The space has really good bones--solid, wood paneled walls, a built in work table and rafters that will be perfect for an eventual lighting update.  But first we needed to get rid of the garage door and cover the main working walls with drywall.  This all happened in the last month and what a difference!  I am thrilled with all of the new light streaming in through the big glass door, and I am so happy to have good tackable wall space again.  Now I can get some new collages going with a lot more ease.

Looks fantastic, B! I am going to be sending you something soon re: that project I mentioned to you earlier this summer... :)

Ahhh...the liberation of an improved work space. It makes such a difference to have the space for you. It's hard to focus when lack of light, lack of wall space, etc. buzzes around like an irritating fly while working. I see a lot of reading happening (or hope you have lots of reading) in that black chair.

I'm about to get back in the studio this week after a hiatus, so it was nice to see these pictures.

Wow! This is a terrific space Barbara! The light quality is incredible.

Best of luck in your creative endeavors there and in the halls of Gatewood this semester.
