A little peek into part of my studio. This is the chest of drawers that I use to store my paintings and art materials that aren't in use. The beautiful nest painting is by my friend, Canadian artist Jody Edwards.
Because most of my paintings are very small, it is easy for me to store them in a piece of furniture like this. I have a few larger paintings that I store in portfolio cases. The bottom drawer contains paintings done by Emma and Chloé.
My studio is in a loft on the top floor of our house. Because it is a loft, the ceiling is sloped. That means I can't put any tall furniture against the walls. I was really happy to find this chest of drawers that was exactly the right height. I painted both the walls and ceiling a peachy rose colour several years ago. I still like the colour but I think I would prefer a light periwinkle blue (my favourite colour) if I was to do it again.
I'll show you more of my studio soon. I still have a lot of things to organize that are taking up room on part of the floor.
I have been going through a number of my paintings today (none of which are in the photos above) trying to decide which ones I would be willing to sell. So some of my paintings may have new homes soon. I'll share the details here once I'm organized.
