I love artists’ studios. I think studios — whether a garage, room or tiny corner — are more personal than any other room, including the bedroom. It’s where artists reveal what’s inside, where they are most vulnerable. Looking around different studios, you find so many great finds. On these inspiring and eclectic home art studios, there are cases of worn pastels, wooden boxes of goodies, paint brushes in pink water and a touch of personality and interior style.
What makes your studio or table top special? Is it the jars of brushes? Your meticulous organizational skills? Or is it the clutter that makes it a never-ending treasure hunt?
Since moving, I still don’t have an art corner. It’s pretty much an art bin and tackle box of paint. I’m really excited about creating my space. My first thing will be creating my wall of inspiration. It usually consists of a bulging bulletin board and stuff all around. It always puts me in a happy mood.
Every year, Lodi (and sometimes Stockton) have Open Studio Art Tours. I attended a couple of weeks ago with friends. It’s so fun. You travel around town, going into artists’ houses and seeing where they work. It’s always amazing to see how different everyone’s workspace is.
