What’s in Your Painting Oasis? (Online art lesson #73)

The WeeklyArtLesson was started with the idea of making a Creative Oasis in Cyberspace… a space that you could click into and feel that your art process was nurtured and supported.  In this holiday of giving thanks, I thank you all for dropping in and making that space come alive.

Cyberspace alone isn’t enough however, we also need a  tangible space to use for our creative projects.  What’s in your ideal studio?  Maybe your “studio” is your kitchen table for a few hours a week. Can you make some little change to make it more effective for yourself?  Share your ideas in the comments section.

Assignment:  For the next month, give thanks every time you enter your studio, no matter what might be lacking from your ideal.  Really appreciate that you have any amount of time, space, and energy to create.

New art classes and painting workshops:

    A word of encouragement to those who feel “I don’t have a studio.”
    I painted in my kitchen almost every day after work for three years.
    I painted during The News Hour, and on into Antique Road Show.
    I painted some great stuff.
    Finally, I decided I was committed enough to finish off my basement as a studio.
    I still paint some great stuff in the basement.
    So, just keep painting in your kitchen.
    You will paint some great stuff! The studio I have now is great, but my painting in the kitchen was just as good. (Except that I’m getting better with practice.)
