One of my 1st quarter traditions, usually around St Patrick's Day or Spring Equinox—this year a little earlier—I try to clean up the studio. I never got it looking really good; this was the best I achieved. (Right now the mapcase is covered—and I do mean covered—with lots'n’lots of boro. It's hard to argue with free glass, but at the same time, till we've had a little more opportunity to ascertain it is, in fact, compatible with the rest, it's sitting out.
I haven't doing a lot with the bead curtain lately, so it pretty much looks as it did in 2014, when I took this picture of the pink/gold/green beadcurtain 2.0:
The area beside the window has been collecting various totschkes, such as the calligraphy various Japanese Daughter for the Year (or their siblings) have made of “my” kanji; assorted wall hangings, embroidered cards, a drawing I made 30 years ago. The latest is a cute little frog charm f2tY's Japanese sister sent me:)
This is the wall just to the right, both as you come through the door, and also right of the beadcurtain window (i.e. wall between the door and window.
I happen to find tidy studios enticing, and when it's a mess (the usual state) it's kinda nice to look upon photographic evidence that it can, in fact achieve a more ordered state. Posting this, of course is self-indulgence, but as I do actually enjoy looking at other artists’ spaces, that's my rationalization, and I'm sticking to it!
