Clean Studio

Oh me oh my, its been a while since my last post. If anyone has been following my twitter, facebook or tumblr, they’d know I’ve been working around the clock. Since my last post Giant has been making some significant leaps, Pegbar is creating a strategy for our long term goals and I’ve been traveling a lot on business.

Its also been a long time since the home studio got some love and attention. Definitely over a year and a bit, to which it gradually turned into a dumping ground and cesspit for everything else.  Which I feel really guilty about. However, this weekend, Sharon and myself tackled the problem head on. 2 person job for 2 days and now I have a two person working studio, equipped with my record player and my library of art books.

You don’t know how good I feel now…….cloud nine doesn’t come close. It’s like I have a creative home again. A personal space to retire to and create from a blank canvas/sketch/space. I regret not taking a before and after picture, to explain how bad this room got, but if I had, I probably would have been too ashamed to show it.

Here is the last painting I did in the room, at a time where 3/4s of the room was a storage, life was nonstop and I was in a bad place. The painting had been sitting in its own mess since.  Its acrylics on canvas. After the wash was applied to the canvas, I only used a trowel to paint with.
