Something besides snow pictures.
It's fun to see where other artists create. Here's a picture of where I do my acrylic painting, in the studio. Some day I'll treat myself to another adjustable height office chair. This one gets to be a little hard on my back. The far wall holds shelving with all sorts of things for mixed media.
You name it and it's probably in a plastic bin. Also, all my quilting and fiber books are on one of the shelving units. I do my water color painting over there by the window. The far left shelves are full of paper and stamping items. The painting on the easel is the first layer for my second, graffiti sheet, swap. Since I took this picture I have added three more layers to it.
This is my graffiti canvas. I'm waiting to receive my graffiti papers from Yvonne and Liz and then I'll start adding more layers to it. I'm pleased with how it looks right now.
Ahhhhh, the infamous Easter egg placemat. I think it was $2.99 on sale, maybe 30% off. I forget.
Here are the shapes cut out from the placemat and I've already used two of them and they are GREAT for stencils. They are thick enough to stay put on the paper and I used a stencil brush to apply the paint. They were easy to clean and I'll be reusing them.
The rest of the place mat will be easy to cut and trim and make my own stencils from it.
