I love being surrounded by all of my completed art works as well as art from other artists that inspire me. I also can't help but feel the warmth from my (essential) candle collection and of course the memories I get from looking at the trinkets I have collected while travelling.
Here is my "desk" where I create my art pieces and do my online promotion. In this picture you can see the new addition of an office chair and my new computer (which I was forced to purchase a couple of weeks ago when my previous computer died on me suddenly while trying to complete my website). The chair was a definite "must have" when I decided to try and make my art career a full time job. Darren (who also works from home) and I were both having back issues and so we treated ourselves to these awesome chairs.
The two top pieces are from the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican, Rome, Italy. I was lucky enough to see these masterpieces by Michelangelo in person and just thinking about the experience brings tears of joy to my eyes. Beneath them are my wooden frames I made while in high school and they contain two prints of my pieces "As It Comes ..." and "A Comfy Nook". The center photo was taken while on my trip to Portugal. It's a sea lion kissing me on the lips! As you can see my little sister, Meagan, was smitten. And lastly, some fabric flowers I made yesterday to add some colour to the vases my mother passed down to me over the weekend (Stay tuned for a post on how to make these quick and easy no sew fabric flowers!).
And best of all, with all the space I saved using my new cabinet I was able to give my Mr.Maverick a nice big drawer all to himself! He's the luckiest 20 pound fur ball ever!
Maverick says, "Thank for stopping by everyone!" ...... well actually he's probably saying, "You opened my darn drawer so where is my treat Mother!". HAHA
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog! Please stop by again. :)
