It May Not Be Big But It’s Mine

Moving into a studio away from home has been a major decision and commitment on many levels.  Now that the decision is made and the work and preparation for Open Studio Tours has been done I’m beginning to feel like I can start to relax and enjoy the painting process.  I look forward with anticipation and can’t wait to see what will be created in this little space–I have a ton of ideas.

For those of you who were unable to come on the CC Studio Tour this weekend, here’s a glimpse of my studio.

studio from front door
Walking in the front door–my new giclee print of “Searching For Hidden Treasures”on gallery wrap canvas is sitting on the bottom shelf.  Cards and some plein air pieces are also displayed.
My New Rug
To the right in the entry–a friend from the gym, after walking through the studio, came back with a beautiful hand-woven rug she had made out of Pendleton wool mill ends as a studio warming gift. Thank you so much Debbie–I love it!!

Looking back from my work area.
Studio work spaces
Lots of working surfaces–yippee!! I had hoped to be painting but alas, there was a steady stream of visitors so I didn’t get anything even started.
A Bright Spot In The Storm
As promised, a full view of this newest painting–30″x40″ oil on canvas–“A Bright Spot In The Storm” (This is taken with a cell phone, not perfect for sure!)
Alphabet Birds all lined up
The Alphabet Birds–in memory of the last trip I ever too with my grandparents–when I was moving them from Idaho to Washington State. We played the game over and over again. (I couldn’t get the center ones without reflection.)

All the art is for sale, if you are interested in any of the pieces please contact me.  Thanks for going on the tour 😉

Have a great week!

  1. I’m disappointed and SO sorry I couldn’t make it today! But …. thank you for the tour of your new neat and tidy studio. Love your work, Kara. Hopefully I’ll have another opportunity to visit when the time is right for both of us.

    Praying God’s continued blessings on you and your brushes.
