Space...


The space I carved out for myself in our small office suits me fine. I have a neat drawing table that fits nicely next to my desk and computer and it is on wheels so that I can easily move it away from the printer or extra bookshelves. It was on sale at almost half price and I like that it is lightweight, has an adjustable drawing board and cupholders. The cupholders are for a glue gun, but I keep a water bottle there.
The window is wonderful to have. But, when the sun is too bright there is a little folding Japanese screen that I can use to block out the light. If you look closely out that window you will see that the snow is up over the sill outside. There are three full bookshelves in here but I have another two in the hallway outside this room and walls of books in our family room. The ones that I keep close to me are reference and picture books. Some are signed by the artists, and several are those have been illustrated by very good friends.

I hope in the next few weeks more of the gang can share the space where they work. I know at least one of the Picture Bookies uses the entire planet as a studio! It is always fun to see where and how an artist works.

Thanks for letting us see your work area, Ginger. I always enjoy "behind the scenes" things. I've been out of town for the last week doing school programs...about 40 shows in a week, so now I'm hoarse and behind. But I'll put together something involving my unconventional work area soon.

I zoomed into the photo and had a good look around. I love your space...especially the inspirational creatures scattered about here and there. Thanks for sharing your space. It gives me a few ideas for my own.

Sure took me a long time to get up here. . .But it was worth the wait. They only thing better would be standing right there in your studio peeking over your shoulder!

Such fun to take a peak inside your life Ginger! It so nice that you have a view to the outside world. Love it!

This looks just like it fits you perectly!
