So, here are a few pictures of my happy little studio. I love you happy little studio!!!!!!! For years I've been collecting all sorts of bright feminine doo-dads (most of them courtesy of Mom.) When Lily was tiny I put them in her room. But now-a-days she's more into lava lamps than baby girl dresses. I can't tell you how exciting it is to finally have a space where my doo-dads can live. To tell the truth, I do believe this is the first time I've had a room to myself. Nine brothers and sisters definitely precludes that.
My studio has been even busier than usual these days (hence the 2 weeks since my last post). The floor has been splattered with paint from numerous commissions I've been working on. The table has been strewn with fabric from my new fabric collection. (That's right! I've finally got my sample yardage!!!!!!!!) And the shelves have been stacking up with more sparkly things that I've always wanted a place for. I'll get some more pics up in a few days.
For all you St Louis locals out there, there is an article about yours truly in the Jan/Feb issue of St Louis AT HOME magazine. Can you believe it?!?!? It's the first time I've done anything like that and it sure was fun. (Though I felt a little silly posing for the camera.) My Friday Girls and other friends came through again helping me get my house all gussied up. (A good excuse to fix up my studio.) Wanna see some pictures? I might just show you some.
Anyways the issue should still be on the shelves if my husband hasn't bought them all ;-)
I've been doing some custom work for the coolest space downtown. It's the lobby for these renovated lofts. All the original old brick and metal pipes are exposed, but the design is very modern. My friend Dana King is doing the interior design. I love it! I spent about 10 minutes there and knew exactly what I wanted to paint. In addition to these 10-inch-blocks I did a 6 footer (YIKES!) with square tiles and circles. I ruined 2 pairs of pants painting that bad boy. Maybe I should charge extra for clothing casualties. :-)
I can't wait to see all the paintings up and get some great photos.
I do believe 1-yr-old Luke is "unloading" the groceries for me. I hear suspicious crackling plastic bag noises. I'd better run before he discovers those dark chocolate granola bars. I love that chocolate has become a health food.
