Recognizing the wonder of my studio.....

Every weekend I have the pleasure of seeing golden morning light pouring into my studio. Unfortunately my day job which requires me to be up by 5:30am, doesn't allow me to experience this heavenly light on a daily basis.
Last weekend I decided to take some snapshots.

 I like to keep my grandparents(RIP), Betty and Bud, close by. It just gives my creative space good juju.This is their wedding photo above. Below is bud in his early twenties-sporting his army uniform.

 Nothing gets the creative juices goin' like headless taxidermy pheasant butt, a small chair  collection and one of my mixed media pieces.
 The makeover of mabel. She did a short stint as a jewelry model. She is now retired.
 anthropomorphic Mixed media mock up. I plan on making more....someday.
 This is where I sit to soak up the morning light. MMMMMMMM.
I picked up this shawl from a friends studio sale. It had belonged to one of their grandmothers. i plan on keeping it f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

*I like to peer into artists creative spaces. I hope others share.

Copy cats s-u-c-k....

As an artist/crafts person  we all will run across parallels in one another's work. that goes without saying. We also look to one another for ideas and inspiration.
Unfortunately, from time to time, we think we have a completely fresh and new idea. Only to see someone has done it.
Read the post below....and see what your ideas and perceptions of DIY are.
