Having An Art Room Again... Soon.

Art is a space consuming hobby... and I haven't had any space at all in this tiny townhouse. I keep dreaming of what I'll be able to do when we move into the farmhouse next month, and I'll have a real art room again! And it will be on the main level, so I can do art while my kidos play!

Back when I used to have an art room, I actually worked on my art.

This my painting (a copy of Degas Dancers in Green):

(Oil on Canvas)

Here's my painting of Starry Night

(Acrylic on Coffee Table... haha!)

Here is a painting I did of my little brother for my mom:

(Egg tempera on cradle)

Here it is shown with the photograph I painted it from:


The sad truth is, I NEVER paint anymore because I don't have the space to do so. And that makes me so sad!We all need our arts and craft supplies to be out where we can work on it with our spare time, and not when we have to devote our afternoon to dragging everything out and putting everything back. You're more likely to craft and/or fix things if your glue gun has a home sitting out on a desk, just waiting to be plugged in! So if you have the space for it, I urge you to designate an arts and crafts space for yourself! You'll see such a change in your devotion to your artistic side!
