Studio Shelves

Bookshelves in my Classroom/studio
I love looking at pictures of artists' studios, so I thought I'd post this picture of a corner of mine. 

I am a huge advocate of having a space of your own to be creative in.  It doesn't have to be large, but it does have to "call" to you, so you'll want to be there, and you'll be inspired.  If you want to create, you really have to be able to leave your tools of the trade out so they're handy  when the mood hits.  Of course the mood hits more often if you're space is waiting for you. 

Some artists like their creative spaces very clean and organized  -  that's what calls to them  Others like to leave a project out in mid-creation to return to. Others like a real mess they can get lost in.  The key thing here is personal creative space.

Do you have a space to call your own?   Art supplies are beautiful  -  they don't need to be put away when company comes.

Are you sketching this weekend?

I love seeing the creative spaces of others! Thank you. You are doing it...posting daily. Good for you. I did it for 2 years straight and burned myself out. Now, I post two to three times per week. It's a beautiful thing.

I love seeing artists studios too and I especially love seeing all your sketchbooks lined up and the watercolors on the wall. Beautiful.
