Good Morning Sunshine! In the studio.

The studio

Of course studios do evolve but this is what it looked like that day. A lap top stand is useful for many other things. But it is helpful to zoom with.

Thomas putting new drawing tables together.
This is where I write at times, my new space is in the living room. But this is where the books on writing are, poetry books, my Folio Society books with nice leather and favorite collections. The room is sunny and fun to read in. Again, now differently laid out.
Before Covid, it was set up for teaching.
Thomas a while before he died and before I set up to drafting table for photo shoots, work and to teach Shibui live.
Now! Wont need these so much!
Setting things up new! (a while ago now.) I have a large sewing mat on top of the table, perfect for knowing the size of the paper at a glance, to cut on, etc.
There is nothing like having a system that works. And this is fantastic! I can now show people how this is done live!
The set up for the microphone, and I do have my lights! Not hanging yet.
These seats do many things, when there are students, they go in the hall a mini gallery for work to be displayed, and seating and storage for their supplies, etc.
Storage for Shibui, printmaking, and other art. Big Grids for composing some forms of art.
The studio mascot in his chair. I would not get so much done without the chair! LOL
The drafting table is put to better use these days!
The display easel, it has multiple jobs too, great for photo shoots of Shibui.
The supplies! I should say some of them!
Things like this too. What ever may block, spatter, drip, drop, squiggle, make a mark, its in!
Coffee of course! Yes! that is a shower door, handy to have ones on bathroom in a study! I took over what was a hot tub room.
There is more to my house that it seems from the road. I wanted to turn the garage into a teaching studio. The summer studio is on the hill out back in the gazebo studio. There is an easel, drawing table, a bench with storage, a tall table, a nice chair to read in. I do Shibui. paint on wooden eggs, and oil paints are done up there, anything really. Sculpting? Printmaking?

When we moved I said fireplace or pool, pool it was. This is what you see from the gazebo studio, not as new as this was when the photo was taken. 26 steps up to the studio.

The Gazebo Studio. It has a lovely fan for cooling, the woods cools it inside as well. Electricity so I could have a small heater in it as well for early spring and fall. Insulated doors and windows.
The fan! LOL
Minus my daughter I have a third option and that is a sun room where I also work or write.
One drawing table I work at.
Some times I work here!

Best wishes! I hope you enjoyed the tour of my studios. May your days be sunny and bright! Always! Pejj

I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.” Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
