A very long overdue studio blog Post to (kind of) start the new year. I cannot believe how much has happened in my own personal life since the last studio blog post update. The biggest change of course has been the studio space itself. I have upgraded my studio space from a small desk area to a whole designated room with TWO desks and enough wall space to allow for extra storage for my art supplies, book collection and other fun things that keep my creativity going.
Enjoy these photos of my new studio!
A new peg board wall put together by my husband, Gabe! Still looking a bit empty, but hoping to get more art and handmade items on them soon enough!
I finally have my own bookshelf for all of my books! I Will need to work on styling all of the shelves a bit better though. my book collection makes me so very happy.
I'm trying to keep my sketchbook out on my desk or just generally nearby to allow for me to quickly grab it and warm up with a fresh sketchbook page before starting any new paintings. It has been difficult to keep this practice consistent, but I am trying!
You can never have too many brushes... I stand by this statement.
Beautiful Oil Brushes get an equally beautiful container.
Animal Crossing and Scooby Doo Ghoul School Stickers Made by Me!
A designated area for my color pencils and pastels. It has been so much better for me to have them out instead of keeping them inside a drawer. Having my art materials out and ready for use has allowed me to use mediums other than watercolor a whole lot more.
Got a new filing cabinet and they were the perfect spot to put these artsy magnets I found at an estate sale.
A painting of Kimchi and Tofu in progress.
Working on a new watercolor. I am using a still from the new Wes Anderson fiLM, tHE fRENCH Dispatch as a reference iMAGE.
gABE HAS FOUND A NEW HOBBY AND HONESTLY, I AM IN HEAVEN! lOOK AT HIS LITTLE laTTE ART. hIS lATTE'S ARE THE BEST I've ever had IN MY OPINION.
And of course, no studio blog post is complete without having little tofu and Kimchi Nearby. Tofu pictured here and Kimchi Pictured Below.
I hope you enjoyed the blog post. I am so thankful for everything I have been able to accomplish so far in my art journey. Here's hoping that 2022 continues to allow room for creativity in my life and yours.
