Working madly to get my studio ready for POSt (Philadelphia Open Studio Tours). This is crazy since it's a whole new studio. I've been planning, painting, constructing for weeks. Finally. I have a rough and workable plan for the entrance to the space. I'll be reusing two doors from the old design studio.

I love planning spaces. Especially ones that allow me to do my work in comfortable and efficient ways. Each new plan is an adjustment of my preferences. This shows the new position of my glass counter. It gives me my second drawing wall.

Today I went to my studio at 10 am. It was already 76 degress. I spent 9 hours there. How? I have an air-conditioner! I now have a studio that I can work in 12 months. I don't have to run away in the dog days of summer. Of course that means no excuses - just go and make some art.

So, I guess that's what I'm going to do.

If I could find my camera there would be some photos.

Seen my camera?

new glass countertop and drawer storage

Working on a design for a "gutter" that will be mounted behind the counter. It will be a basket that will hold containers of tools, printing and framing  materials. Looking at materials and fabrication ideas. Wire baskets, gutters, wooden boxes?

Sketches to come.

What an amazing day today at 1241.

Having the studio here is so exciting! Spent the whole holiday constructing. This is the view while eating some yogurt and several glasses of water. Construction images to come soon. In the meantime enjoy the view.

The art studio is almost packed for the move. Much of the supplies are packed in plastic reusable bins. I have photographed the layers so that materials and tools will be easily found. Making for fast unpacking to the shelf walls that will be constructed before the move.

schematic sketches

Some sketches for new drawings. Have done some additional mark tests to determine choices of paper and medium. Looking forward to being able to get into the studio again.
