“When you start working, everybody is in your studio- the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas- all are there. But as you continue painting, they start leaving, one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you are lucky, even you leave.”
This week in For the Painter #26 ...
1. Art Studio Organization
In this blog post, I share some resources to help you identify your style of organization.
Take a quiz from professional organizer Cassandra Aarssen to find out if you’re a ladybug, butterfly, bee, or cricket type of organizer.
I’m a ladybug type of organizer because I like visual simplicity but I need quick and easy methods of organizing. You can take a look at the inside of my studio closet to see how I store my art supplies.
2. Best Art Studio Tips
In this video, artist Chase Langford provides several great studio practice tips. Learn about shipping methods, hanging hardware, and adding a thumbprint to the back of your art.
Coming up next week, I'll do a book review of two books by artist John Blockley.
I hope you have a good week.
