An art room is very personal. All the things that make me smile, inspire me or are useful to my playing should be in here where I can see them. It is not a room that has to cater to anyone else's tastes or ideas of what a house should look like. There is no room for decorating rules in here. This little sign that John bought me on our honeymoon in Paris, hangs on the entrance door.
I am still messing and tweaking my art room. With the sloped ceilings, I have less wall space to hang those things around me that I like to look upon. I have been challenged by the space. This "Observation" sign hung on the office door of my old store. One of my customers made it for me when I began publishing my 'zine of the same name. On top of the cabinet, which holds paper (lots of paper!) is the shadowbox shrine I made at one of the retreats that Tim Holtz invited me to. Tim has a blog now and he is doing a tag a day complete with instructions and prizes. The first 4 tag projects used our Stampers Anonymous images he designed.
This little vignette sits on a shelf. The encaustic was a wedding gift from artist Jane Harrison. The framed "Ginny" is a place card from a dinner party I gave. I bought the tiny frames, about 2"x3" and then the name of each recipient and the holly sprig was added.
Mona was a retail display piece for little metal book necklaces that I sold. Now she holds a variety of necklaces that were gifted to me over the years.
