The Artist's Lair

I thought it might be interesting to see different artists workspaces or escapes. Below is a composite image of what many military spouses refer to as an "I love me room" because it is where we hand and display various plaques, pictures, awards and mementos from our career and life in general. For me it is a place to escape and work on images, read, watch a movie or just relax.

Do yall have pictures to share of your equivalent space?

Nice JC. I have no such space right now since I work at home and my "studio" is filled with the stuff I had to bring home from the office when the building got sold. I might try to reclaim it in the spring and get rid of some of the day job stuff in there.

The two pastels on the right were done by my Gramps. My dad was 15 y/o in the top one.

Never had the luxury of having a spare room for that sort of thing.

Probably never will either.

I had two 10 x 10 ish rooms in NY but one was office space and the other was equipment storage.

Up here in NH I have some basement space for storage and 1 10x10 ish space for shooting still lifes and a little 6 x 8 space for a desk and computer work station.

If things work out in the next couple of years, I'll probably look for a one bedroom or studio apartment somewhere warm and cheap for a home base and a Class B or small Class C RV to travel around the country for most of the year.

nothing as clean organized. just my workshop, which isn't photo based. and my room which is packed with everything but my art.

We live in a tiny farmhouse right now all 6 of us......so my computer and camera gear is sandwiched between a treadmill, a vinyl cutter, my kids game cabinet, the washer and dryer and my gun safe.

Nice studio JC.

Thanks for resurrecting my old thread Marline. It was a good one!

Here's where I work. This year I must spend less time here and get out into the world, for the world is not beating a path to my studio.

Often times I spend a wee too much time in this space.

I wasn't going to post this but reading that I am not the only one crammed into a cubby hole here is my "studio" where I have begun to fill my second terabyte hard drive with my artwork... we actually do have a spare room but my hubby uses it for his reloading room so I get this corner of the dining room. Good thing digital art doesn't take much space to create!

This is the first time I have had this much space in at least 15 years. Most of the wall art was someplace else or in storage until recently. There is art from at least four other artists from here at FAA.

I could not possibly post my little studio room. You all would have nightmares! Lol the floor is splashed with many colors as are the walls and furniture. I am still waiting on my very own studio as opposed to my tiny, walk in closet sized bedroom that I use for my studio.

 

JC Findley

Paint splashed everywhere would seem to be a good thing.

 

Is there a way to post a photo to threads without having to upload them to our gallery?
My studio photo on facebook, perhaps the link will work.

I'm a bit of a minimalist so my studio might seem sparse. My treasures are my dog, my window views and my beautiful studio space :)

In my current abode, I'm renting there ain't room for an "Artist Lair"

There's the living room, where I now sleep.

And the former bedroom, now my "Workshop" where I sleep in the chair when I'm not sleeping on the couch in the living room

I hope my followers weren't annoyed by my uploading all these silly little photos. I sure wish there was a better way to post photos here.

Here is my digital "studio". I apologize for the cruddy photo, I'm not good at photography in low light situations. You can barely make out Roger's Vulture Pair sculpture immediately above the monitor.

Here is the painting corner of my traditional media studio which is the spare bedroom in the duplex I rent. It's an old photo but this corner is largely the same.

This is the drawing table corner of the traditional media studio, another old photo it looks a bit different now, more paintings hanging on the wall and none in racks, they are stored elsewhere now.

The is the library/storage area of the traditional media studio. Another old photo, it looks a bit different now. This is where I store unframed finished paintings now and a few of the antique toy trucks in my collection.

I also paint plein air on occasion, though not nearly as much as I used to, here are a couple photos of my outdoor studios.

And now the basement "studio" for my scale modeling hobby. Again, old photos, looks a fair bit different now.

That is substantial David. I don't think fellow artists that follow us mind seeing how we work.

Very cool Roger and I have a small print version of one of those "you's" if you look above my couch.

Very nice everyone. I just think it is interesting to see how other artists work or decorate.

Great thread, love seeing where artists live and work.

Once a year, here in my little town we have an art walk....the folks go from one artist's home to the next, checking out the art, as well as the decor. I love it, I make goodies, coffee and tea...serve wine....and show people around my home. It's a great opportunity to meet new people.

I don't just use one room in my home, my whole house is full...some would even say, my old farm house is a work of art...I've painted vines and trees on my floors and walls, my sculptures, paintings, and quilts are all around....it's a thirty year work in progress. Can't imagine living anywhere else.

My door is always open, just drop me a line and I'll happily give you a tour.

Cheers, Barbara

By the way, JC,.. I knew that you had purchased a print of Leah's wonderful painting.... And went through a "Where's Swezey?" search as soon as I clicked onto this thread

I like the Papasan chair, JC. We had one in Okinawa (1971) and shipped it back with our stuff.

Nice aviation art too.

Wow! That's a ton of boots!

I didn't even notice the boots! Wow you and my hubby could compete for most boots! lol

You can NEVER have too many boots. There are two more pairs after Christmas but I have to point out three pairs belong to my wife as she has embraced the Texas lifestyle.

There is also a set of first class airline seats from my old and now defunct airline serving as seating in there as well.

I agree one can never have too many boots. Not cowboy boots tho :x

I do own a pair of Frye boots, do they count?

Life part one, I built a painting studio right onto the house...had a private entrance for clients, the perfect lighting and a big dump sink.
Life part two, I paint either in the garage or the kitchen,depending on the season. The prior owner was an artist and had those two rooms rigged up for painting with added skylights, insulation, a/c and dump sinks in the garage and a massive storage unit where a dinette set would go in the kitchen. I just added two types of lighting, besides the natural light thru the skylights and windows and I was good to go.

Studio space - what is that. If we are talking of this computer desk - it would have to be at least cleaned up a bit (a lot) before I would show it to anyone. Otherwise - I've never had studio space - I painted in the bedroom or on the floor in the living room in other houses I've lived in.

In my next life, maybe . . . .

I took a new photo of my digital "studio" under better light. This is really just the north wall of my front room.

What is a Frye boot? I mean it's not Lucchese but I suppose it would count.

David King, your lair matches your personality.

Let's just start with my entry way. I painted this brick inside, it's fake, but I love it and it makes me feel like I've got real brick in my home.

This is the entry to my lair.

18 years ago I built my home and art studio. This room was built to allow me to paint and the floors are hard so I could clean up my paint splatters. I keep it beautiful and minimalistic to inspire my art.

In our next house, I plan to have a room dedicated as my space. Space for all my hobbies, as well as my photography. For now, everything is just kind of scattered throughout various spots in the house, and kind of follows me around, if portable. My computer is in the corner of a smallish room that used to be my piano room - until my husband kind of took it over with his hobbies. *sigh* Our next house, I swear! (I can dream...)
