First, I must say in my loudest outside voice, that I’m GRATEFUL to have a space to make art and call my own. When we moved into our new home twelve years ago, this space was the previous owner’s “man cave”. But I claimed it the first day. The windows are east facing, the ceiling is coffered and it fits all of my stuff. Except my textile, embroidery, knitting stuff in the extra bedroom closet, but that’s for another day.
Having Multiple Muse Disorder means that interests, desires and manifestations of many creative paths must get out somewhere. White Wolf Studio is the place where my artistic visions dream, breathe and live. But with that comes “stuff”. All good stuff, but I can get myself stuffed with stuff pretty quickly. I love to try stuff, buy stuff and ultimately stack stuff. I’m such a stack rat. So……..I took about 12 hours of my time off from work and this is the result. It may not be as glossy as some of those great “Studio” magazines or as interesting as Lynn Perrella’s “Art Making & Studio Spaces”, and even as I post these pictures it may not seem like such a big deal. But I’m ready for 2012 and my space is open, breathing and full of life and potential.
And then there are those gems I find when I sort, purge and toss bits and bobs that just can’t go in the bin.
