Had a great day in the studio last tuesday. Took a couple pics. Digital photography is great but I really want wireless transfer. I know I can take a shot or two with my iPhone but I like using my camera and that means transferring from my memory card to my laptop and then uploading to my Flickr account. No. I don't upload images to FB because I find their TOS (Terms of Service) offensive. At flickr I control the rights of each and every one of my images individually. (I'm looking forward to seeing what Google + has to offer. I hate Facebook in O so many ways.)
I don't believe it's real. I have four days in my studio when I don't have to think about anything but making art. Today I went into the studio for the first day of my of my art retreat.
I have been working on these drawings for ages. They are 6 x 6 how much trouble could they be? Well, first they started out as pencil drawings. I laid down a grid and began working with a grid of directional lines, In some places you can see the intricate herringbone marks peeking through. The work hung on the wall for weeks. I couldn't see where it was going. I took it down and put it away.
I love planning spaces. Especially ones that allow me to do my work in comfortable and efficient ways. Each new plan is an adjustment of my preferences. This shows the new position of my glass counter. It gives me my second drawing wall.
Got the keys and went over to check out the space. Finally. Can't wait to get started moving in! Begins this weekend.
This is a new series of posts documenting my process of creating a new studio. The space will serve as a personal art studio. Heavybubble HQ and gallery space. This requires some careful thought. Gathering requirements, physical attributes and needs; all contribute to a successful outcome.
