You Know What Makes Me Happy? A Clean Studio

You Know What Makes Me Happy? A Clean Studio

This is my watercolour painting table. And yeah, it usually does have fresh flowers on it (these ones courtesy of Jay and i Fiori On James North)

We are tidying our house up to sell it (Anyone looking for a house in the Hamilton countryside??). This means I cleaned my studio, which means I had to take pictures while it was tidy. Actually, usually it's pretty tidy, but I had been framing some prints and there was kind of a frame-packaging explosion on the studio floor. Also, I finally tackled the stack of unopened bank statements on my desk (phew!). 

The studio is definitely my happy place. Just being in it makes me feel like a "real" artist (I am a real artist). It's also so bright and cheerful. It makes me wish it had a couch, so my friends could all come over and just hang out while I paint. But even I know that that would end up with me...not painting. Haha. 

Finn's bed is in the corner, where he sleeps while I paint. He's usually half off the bed, like this. The colours on the bulletin board are watercolour paints on card, that you cut off and use as needed.

To the left of Finn's bed is my computer desk, and another table with my scanner and copy stand. I made the "Happy Happy" Bunting at a class at Needlework in Hamilton.
