Studio 111 is coming along! Between painting trim and windows, installing light fixtures, and handling other assorted prerequisites to set up my new creation space, settling in has been a slower process than I imagined. It seems all the slower when compared to how very quickly everything had flowed to get me to this location!
Here is your first look at the so-called gallery side of my space, where I will showcase completed, framed pieces. In this area, you can get a feel for what the artwork might look like in your home.
What you see on the wall to your left is just the start of what will ultimately be a salon-style installation – not my favorite style of art presentation to be certain, but a necessity in this studio.
As you can see, I had the electricians move the chandelier from the working side of the studio to the gallery side, and I think it looks quite stylish! This warmer light was not helpful among the cooler, daylight bulb shop lights, but by showcasing the fixture on the other side, it has become a real asset.
Next month, I’ll give you a peek at the working half of the space. I look forward to your seeing the new studio in person!
