We're in the throes...

...of unpacking, and I just had to show you this extraordinary artwork I found in the process:

Accidental artwork - packing tape pulled from box

Just to prove I'm not full of it!
Now, back to the unpacking, and hopefully I can check in next week with a restored studio, 'cause right now it's merely a Palace of Possibility!  More truth photos below:



Check out these snazzy cabinets; John kindly painted them before we moved,
and I'm all over the colour and the possibility of more layers.

Isn't life exciting?!!!!!

  2. Oooh, seems to be a nice big place Win! I thought you were downsizing LOL! It's open to all sorts of possibilities! Love the accidental artwork - I was just thinking that the paint marks I enjoy most are the ones on my palette paper - the ones that I could not deliberately create. They always make me so happy! Hope you're settling in well in your new house - such exciting time for you! xx

    1. It most certainly is, Zsuzsa, and while we, too, thought we were downsizing, we actually found a place slightly larger than we had, and most of it in the studio. :D How did that happen, I wonder? Pronoia is my word of the year, and I'm loving it.

    1. Isn't it just, Deann - I was just gob-smacked to see it. I got chills in a 28 degree heat wave. ;-) And I can hardly wait to get organized in the studio...it's going to be a blast!

  5. Look at that Palace of Possibility - so much space! And I LOVE the printed filing cabinets. They make me want to paint the grey ones in our dungeon. I’m thinking green through turquoises to blue - like a peacock, or the waters of Grassi!

    1. Isn't it, Sim? I can hardly wait to get organized in the studio. It's most exciting, and I already have more space than I can use, which means new supplies, right?!!

  8. How exciting Win, your new art space looks quite a bit larger than your last one. That's a beautiful patterned tape pull!

    1. It seems huge right now, Laura, with tons of space. Of course I don't have tables and chairs for guests in there yet, but that will come. I'm looking forward to our first play date!

    1. So right, Corrie, and the space is going to be a beauty - I'll be able to teach here again, which I wasn't sure was going to be in the cards! While I've not yet thrown the box out, it's on the way, but I've got the use of a high res photo, most certainly!

  11. Wow, what a fabulous space! Definitely a palace of possibility. It takes a special sort of mind to find those accidental artworks - you have to be on the lookout for beauty everywhere.
    Wishing you all the best in your new home and a swift settling in.

    1. It's so awesome, isn't it Jackie? I was stunned to see it. I definitely saved it as a photo, and the box itself still sits in the pile of discarded ones, so there are possibilities still. The space is great, the cabinets are awesome, and now I can play! Life is SO good! xoxo
