The exterior & framing is almost done, hoping to have it pass inspection on Monday! I’m pretty excited and a little antsy, i want to get my stuff in there and work,... like yesterday. However, i’ve got a bit of a wait. Electrical is next, followed by insulation, dry wall, flooring…. 2 years ago

we are settling a lawsuit (soon I hope) and want to buy a house, when we do, my first order of business is to build a little studio out back! 4 years ago
once i have my own place, or place with someone else, i want to be able to have my own space where i can paint. i would ideally like a lot of space, but even any room would be awesome. 5 years ago
I woulnt care if it was small..Id just love it….specially if itd be overlooking the ocean…more peaceful///aaahhhhhh 5 years ago
I can’t do anymore today, because I have to set up these canvases for my show tonight. But yeah, I did some stuff, and I think it looks good. It doesn’t look like I did much, but all the shelves didn’t get added until last night and all of the 18X24 pieces of paper have been organized and stowed underneath the table, which is pretty cool as a place to store large drawings.
I think I might need one more set of shelves, we’ll see. (:
Eh. Getting there. 6 years ago
1.) When cleaning up/going through large sketch pads 18X24 seperate the stuff into FIVE piles
1. trash to be recycled
2. stuff that could be framed or sold as original sketches
3. stuff that could be altered for collages or mail art
4. stuff that is only written on one side that you can reuse*
5. stuff that is clean on both sides…
1. Okay so I am not big into recycling but I think I really should start, esp. as an artist, we have the potential to use ALOT of stuff. So I am going through the papers, and what ever has writing on both sides will be folded in a paper bag to be recycled
2. The other pile, I use one of the actual empty sketch pads, you know what I’m talking about the one with the cardboard back and the front page that says Sketch Pad 18X24 etc and place them all in it and then take clips to keep it shut, label it stuff that can be photographed for your portfolio and then sold or given away as gifts
3. Collages are neat, if you have a sketch you did you really like, cut it out and put it behind a photo graph or neat collagish type thing, or cut them up and use them for nice mail art. I have a small ring of about 4 people that do I mail art with it’s great, I think we all have little scraps of art that we haven’t a clue what to do with make a nice post card with it, scan the art onto you computer so you have a copy of it for your portfolio or website and then mail the baby off!For now do what you did to pile number 2, clip it in an empty sketch pad or if you don’t have one of those just sandwich the art between two pieces of card board or postboard and clip.
4. Okay if you are in art school you’ll realize that your teachers think you are rich or that your parents are rich, as for me I work for a small non-profit and I def, am making just enough to survive and go to school, about 185 a week. So, take all the paper you’ve drawn on one side and collate about 10 to 15 pages and staple them at the top and reuse them for quick figure sketches in class, it will help you avoid bringing that BIG Heavy 100 paged sketch pad with you to class/figure drawing session all the time, you can just bring two small packets of paper.
5.) For the paper that some how isn’t in your sketch pad but is empty on both sides, staple that too and save it, you can use it for projects or for when your teacher wants you do an hour long figure drawing, etc. or if you notice that a figure during a session is in a pose you really want to capture, you’ll have nice paper for it.
Conserve what you can. You’d be surprised what you can do with it. (: 6 years ago
Richard and I eat ramen on the floor on in bed so now the kitchen is mine (: 6 years ago
So the things that still needed to be work on are:
All of the 18X24 sheets of paper, what the heck are you going to do with them? It should NOT be that much stuff! There are probably 100 pieces you really like and the rest you just really need to either get rid off our use for collages
But as for the ones you keep, do you want to roll them up or what? Eh, a nice cardboard 18X24 or larger, holder would be good.
As for the extra sketch books, I will use them next semester, but I need some where to put them for now, in general though, I should try to keetp them down to one newspaper pad and one nice paper pad and maybe if needed one water color pad. but regardless, even with art supplies it seems that less if more.
I also need to clean out the closet so I can put things in there too.
As for the sewing machine, i would like to get that set up and operational, I might look for another little end table …
Regardless the most important thing at this point is dealing with the 18 X 24 drawings.
I would like to upload them online and make prints of them, and sell them at the art show. (:
I’m done rambling.
PS, this whole thing is in my kitchen. I’ll upload a photo of my whole kitchen you can see how I used my space, it might help you see how your kitchen can be an artist studio. etc.etc. blah blah blah
Other supplies like chalk, pencils and paint brushes etc, 6 years ago
yeah I dunno. there is still some work to be done. 6 years ago
The picture is blurry, but there are a few you’ll see…. 6 years ago
I really need a friend with a garage that I can borrow for awhile. I have a gas tank and my mom thinks I’ll burn the house down. There is just no space for me while I live at home. 7 years ago
I want to build a studio with plenty of room to paint large canvases and large boards. I prefer to have skylights with tall ceilings and a killer sound system. 7 years ago
I’m interested in pottery and silver jewlery but these require items like a gas tank and kiln. Fire insurance doesn’t cover that in my parents house. I need somewhere I can work without having to worry about damage and posioning people with paint fumes or anything like that. 7 years ago
just a wee, well-lit corner that’s tidy & all your own…
I took a couple of drawers for supplies, a wee table for tea or coffee, music & a small scented candle.
I love dumpster diving. There is such great STUFF that people throw out! you don’t have to be a foodFreeGanto appreciate that the Western Gluttony & the disgraceful Culture of Cool also present opportunities to enrich daily Life with freebees!
If you can’t use it to organize YOUR goodies, you can paint it & give it to a friend!
Most important: the light. I picked up an inexpensive angle lamp & installed a *true-light bulb. They aren’t expensive: Reveal or Verilux .
So-Lux claims to be the best but I haven’t tried that one.
The $3 bulbs work wonderfully for me.
In all true lightbulbs are fantastic to identify art colour schemes & really encourage you to want to BE in that area.
...especially in Winter, if you’re prone to S.A.D.
The best part is that you get to tell people that you used KRYPTONITE for painting or to get over Winter lethargy! 7 years ago
