At the end of each year I spend time evaluating my studio space. This year I’d like to try doing it more regularly so it doesn’t get quite so overwhelming. I need to use my small space differently for my next body of work. My space is small, so even when it’s messy, there needs to be an underlying organization to keep any sense of control.
As I started my latest studio excavation, Jean Wilkey posted a challenge on her blog about reorganizing our studios. Since I’ve been shifting from working in watercolor to oil I need to make more space to work as well as for new supplies. I’m happy to find other artists working on this so I can get some new ideas. My goal will be an improved studio in 30 days, not sure ideal is possible given space limitations.
The current state
I don’t have photos of the very beginning of the process. Suffice it to say it was like this but with tons more stuff on the table. My creative process is messy,which gets reflected in my workspace. I’d also much rather paint than clean.
I’ll be posting updates as I progress.
