New Studio News

Well, if you can believe it: sore throats and sneezes abound.  I suppose it comes with the start of the school year and the end of the summer.  That pretty much brings everything to a snail's pace.  Still, we press on.  My super amazing husband got my studio floor in!!  xo


It is done, done, done, and it is so darn gorgeous.  We have moved on to picking up trim and baseboards and getting them all painted up.  I did most of it outside.  My daughter worked in the studio on Sunday afternoon.


She loves to paint.

Don't you love the light??  I love the light.

Everyone is so impressed with how pretty this space is turning out to be.  We can't even remember what it used to look like.


So, now my husband is working on the door frames for the double French entry doors.  The baseboards will go in really quick.  We still have some lighting and the entry room ceiling as well.  Clearly - we are nearing the finish line though!!  Oh it feels SO good.  It keeps getting me all teary eyed.

I couldn't help myself.  I had to move in a little.  Just a little.  I have a lamp, a couple of dressers, and a table & chair where I have my laptop set up.


I've moved in some plants that I know will do just fine.  And for now, I'm keeping the purple.  It's pretty subtle.  One of my readers mentioned it's considered a 'neutral' when it comes to interior decorating.  At this point, I have to say I agree.  Art looks really wonderful on these walls.  I have one large wall left that's all white - my 'gallery wall'.  I'm not sure if I'll leave it or not.  It looks so darn stark, but perhaps it will be great to hang new work on.  My purple walls will be for the art that is mine, that I am not selling or that I have purchased for my special space.


Oooh I'm so excited!  I thought this end would never come.  So... what do you think!?  : )  Will you come visit?

Linking to WIP Wednesday @ TN&TN

Lovely! I'm a looong way from Saskatoon, but maybe one day. I'm sure that the beautiful work environment will inspire new work!

You bet!! How exciting to be this close to finishing!
Hope you are all feeling better soon.

I hadn't realized until just now that I had done my most successful work (both writing and art) in a northlight studio with light lilac walls. Wish I hadn't sold that house! Thanks for the memory jog as I, too, move to my new space!
