|So, I finally did it....something I've been thinking about for 3 years.....I painted the walls in my studio white! I know for some people this would be a no brainer, but I love my colours.....
and yes, painting it all white was kind of shocking...it took me some time to feel comfortable with the changes.....
the colours of the walls in the past were orange, aquamarine, deep yellow.....
so yes, much more intense in the past....I loved the richness of the colours....I loved working in and being with those colours...very warm and welcoming.
however! it was time for a major change....cleaning out every corner and crevice....giving away loads of old glass scraps to new fusers and mosaic artists....whew....that felt good.
and finally, to lighten and brighten the whole place up with fresh paint....I warmed up the white a bit, into a creamy white....I wouldn't have been able to have a cool white as a working space.....brrrrr!
I wanted to give my art, especially my paintings every chance to really be seen, since they are a newer medium for me. My glass often dominates the scene, and rightly so as this is still my main creative pursuit. It will be extra easy to show glass in space now too...which I have known all along.
the bold sexy colour is now found only in the art...not painted onto the actual walls.
I LOVE my studio, I have huge gratitude for this space.

|A small new painting....the 1st painting I have done for about a month....I have been working on glass commissions, I am grateful for these lovely opportunities...
I just shipped out large boxes of carefully wrapped glass and steel sculptures bound for California and Toronto.....
and sooooo, as a balance to that I played with a bit of paint.....this panel had been started about 6 weeks ago....this piece is fully covered with collage underneath the paint.,....you can see the texture and layering, and some words and images....
it pleases me greatly!! more to come...for the Thanksgiving Studio Tour in a couple of weeks.....stay tuned....

i drink tea all day long in my studio....actually i should say, late into the night too....cause my studio time is the very best in the evening hours.....i work during the day, absolutely, but from 6 pm onward is when things really happen creatively....or at least that is my fave time in the studio....less distractions, quieter time....
recently i have had the great good fortune to have a few of my art images used on tea cannister labels! i am super excited about this....most especially because 2 of the 3 images chosen are my mixed media paintings!! yay!!!!!!
the tea company is called "The Naked Leaf"......the shop is in a funky area of Calgary....i will be making an order of tea for me!! check it out.....
my friend Amy Dryer, from Calgary.....who is an amazing painter also has her images used on the labels.....
back to studio and tea....
do any of you love tea?
