I'm having a work at home kind of day today. I've spent a lot of time down at our new studio since we opened and I love it but sometimes I just miss my home studio stuff. Yes I know.... I'm incredibly fortunate to have 2 locations to paint in. I count my blessings every day. Today I woke up with a bad headache and just feel kinda yucky so I'm enjoying the home space. As you can see it doesn't have to be kept quite so "picked up". It's loaded with supplies and it just feels good to me. It's kind of small in the photo but there's a clay pot sitting in front of the shelves. I use it to hold my wash brushes. My son made that coil pot when he was in middle school and I treasure it. I decided it needed to stay in here with my art stuff since my studio used to be his bedroom. I see it, I think of him and I smile.
Of course I had to make room in the studio for the movie collection. Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp keep me company when I paint.
There's no such thing as too many brushes. They can be a pain to store though so if you get a chance to snag a display rack from a store do it. Many times retail stores get new displays from manufacturers when new products come out. Ask them what they do with the old ones. Besides art suppliers try the craft stores, home decor places, even home improvement stores.
Love and cherish your creative space,
