A couple of weeks ago Seth Apter's blog was recommended by a friend as a "don't miss out" blog to read. Upon arriving the first post I read was one about allowing the world to see us, we as artists, in our true habitat. (you can read the post here: Seth's Call for The Studio Table)
Also known as the cluttered studio and messy worktable!
This is my main work table area. Normally this is 4' X 3' but, as you can see, I'm working in about 1' X 1'.
Why are we always worried about cleaning everything up? What's the deal? Isn't it true to form if you're a working artist then you have a messy work area?
I know for me that this is completely, without a doubt, true almost everyday.
So here goes...here's your MESSY tour. And believe me it is. I'm in the midst of working at the stocking of several shops and three shows plus two classes in about 6 weeks time. Oy!
This is the opposite side of my main work area, also the same size, but now covered in resin supplies plus some other things.
I know where everything is...it appears normal to me.
And this is another work area usually 8' X 3'. Not sure there's even an inch there if I wanted it to be.
I have two more full lengths of counter space that I'm not showing off. They look pretty much the same just serve different purposes.
So...what does your space look like? Are you productive? I may be have a messy space but I can crank out some artsy stuff!!
Lots of good things happen over on Seth's blog!
Until next time!
