Sneak Peek Friday

Jennifer, over at Studio JRU, thought that we should all join up and show our messy studios and what we've been up to. I think it's a fun idea, and everyone is always curious about everyone else's art studios. It's not exactly perfect for me to join in, since I'm not in my studio right now. Here in San Francisco, I've taken over half the dining room table (we eat in the kitchen) and the other half belongs to hubby. Since I've brought limited art supplies, the mess is not as big as it would be at home. I still manage to trash the area, though, and I even had to find a cabinet to hide some of the stuff in. I guess you grow to fit whatever area you have, right?!? In the first shot, I especially love the coffee mug and the baby monitor. Two things that are standard in my space, since I normally settle down to work, with a cup of java, while the baby is napping. I also just finished that sketch in the journal in front and you can see that in this journal post. It took me days to finish this one thing, since I have only been working during naptime, if naptime actually happens. The second photo shows the backside of the computer, where I stash more of my junk. That is the only safe place on the table that I can put my paint pens and markers so that the kiddo can't reach them. As it is, I already have to grab my colored pencils out of her hands, since she loves to run through the house with them. That's not exactly safe! This photo shows the cabinet where I've stashed some of my other goods. Not all that stuff is mine, but I'd say about 90% of it is mine. :) On Monday, I will be going to UPS to ship a lot of stuff home so that we don't have to travel with all of that. I can only imagine what the airline would say if I showed up with all of these gels and paints and things in my carry-on! So anyway, I don't think I will participate in next week's Sneak Peek, since my whole house will be in shambles after we return from this trip. Hope you all have a great weekend! StudioJRU


  1. A 'studio on the road'... love it! It is wonderful that you can set up shop anywhere!! I had forgotten that you weren't home. :) Your journal is beautiful!

    I am so glad that you joined in this week, even though you weren't home. I hope you join in again once you get settled!

  2. Oh the dining table!!! That's my work space as well. Actually I've taken over the entire dining room. We also eat in the kitchen. Had to laugh when I read that part of your post!

  3. So nice of you to let us see your space. My hubby and I would do that, too. We felt like at least we're together. Looking forward to you coming back!
