My new studio is almost empty. This is what it looks like on the inside. There’s a little chicken door on the back wall, it looks to clean to have been a chicken coop, but that would explain the south facing windows. Maybe I’ll make it into a cat door.
The first time I went inside my studio it was filled with furniture and junk. It was hard to see, but I got a feeling . I had some ideas about how I wanted it finished off. But, now I have some new ideas. They are a bit more expansive, more space, more light.
Last weekend we visited our friends Paula and Pam and seeing Pam’s painting studio made me want a high ceiling and white walls. At first I was thinking about keeping the ceiling low for the heat, but it’s really a small enough space that I don’t think it will matter much. And I can picture it, the space above my head going up and up to the rafters. A ceiling fan and bright lights. Blow-in insulation in the walls and wooden storms and screens on the windows. And I’ll paint the walls white. A bit hard, the wainscoting is aged such a nice brown, but I don’t want brown walls, I want white walls. Clean and bright. And air conditioner in the window in the summer and a woodstove in the winter. I can’t wait to move in.
