Isn’t the word space just devine? When I talk about my work or trying to make work, I often talk about “my space”. I totally overuse the word along with other arty terminology like “my practice” and “body of work”. Oh delight!
Anyway, I digress. I have been wanting to create somewhere to paint at home. A studio space. After finishing uni for 2010, I felt completely lost without somewhere to work. So at length, my husband and I cleared some space in a spare bedroom. And he got me a lovely big trestle table for Christmas. Presto – it’s a studio space!
Now I have stick things up, and paint things, and leave things out and close the door etc. And the natural light is good. I think when we head toward shorter days of the middle of the year, I might have to invest in a good lamp to light my space. Mmmmm space. Am I rambling?
