Studio Table




This is not a table, but it is my studio and it doubles as my kitchen, though more painting goes on than cooking :-). Seth Apter from the lovely Altered Page blog has challenged us to show our studio table in a mess and link back to his blog, so go here to see more studios. I have included my studio helpers as well, Max my cat and Bella my dog, Zoe has no interest :-). The painting I am working on is in progress and is in no way done. There is much sanding of venetian plaster and tea bags going on at the moment.
The last photo is where it is today.
I also have a tiny spare room where I keep all my art supplies, but it is too small to work in.
To see finished work go to my website here.
Have fun checking out the studios! Thanks Seth!
XOXO

Love that piece your working on and of course where would we be without our furry friends. I have two cats and two dogs that venture in from time to time. The hardest part is stopping my tabby from drinking dirty paint water and walking in paint!

Annie said...

Kathryn, Thank you! I can relate, my cat Max wants to get into every thing! xoxo

So good to see how you make use of such a small space to work in! I'm really curious about the large painting you're working on :) looks great, so far, with that beautiful texture...

Annie said...

Judy, yes, it is a fun project. xoxo

Tracey Fletcher King said...

Annie said...

Lynne, Ah Max, he is a devil and an angel rolled into one creature. Yes, I have old pine cabinets and the painting is big, I call it the beast :-). xoxo

I like how you have a studio first then a kitchen. And your pets are beautiful.

Annie said...

Sharmon Davidson said...

Annie, thanks for sharing your studio space. I think it's great that it's more studio than kitchen! xoxo

Annie said...

Max looks like one of those cats who has to be in the middle of everything that's going on. My sister's cat is the same way!

Annie said...

Kj, :-).xoxo

KateP, Yes, that's my Max!xoxo

You hand sewed all those tea bags? Yep, I read below and saw it. I'm in LOVE. Tea bags are some of my favorite recycled items I love to use. Never thought to use plaster over them, but it sounds like a very busy and ambitious project. I'll definitely be back, because I want to see its progression.

Annie said...

Bleubeard,
Yes, I did I sewed all Summer while also working on other paintings, but now this one is taking all my time.It is an idea and I won't know until it is done if it was successful,I love tea bags too, and I love rusting them up. xoxo

ZenDotStudio said...

love how the painting is looking! and Max is quintessential cat, sitting under the stool like that, looking slightly annoyed as cats like to do.

Annie said...

ZenDot, Thanks. Max is a CAT cat :-).xoxo

Love that you make the most of what you've got (or haven't got) by storing your supplies and working in the kitchen! I look forward to returning to see the current piece in it's final glory. Have a beautifully creative week! :)

Annie said...

Trashbubble, Thank you, I just finished the piece and will share photos soon. xoxo

I just love seeing this piece in a room as it gives me an idea of the size. Really amazing (I see your pets are also art enthusiasts!)
