I know MYSELF and the needs I have to support my art making. Respecting this inner authority, I have structured my creative life like this:
|AT HOME. I make my art at the dining room table in our Decatur, Georgia home. My work gets moved to eat any of our meals unless we choose to eat picnic style on the living room floor with big pillows. (photo by Tony Martin)|
|SAPELO PRESENCE. Cat companionship fulfills a visceral need I have to be centered. Sapelo likes to sit behind me on a bench when I am drawing. And, as you can see, my table is more than satisfactory for drawing daily. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)|
That's Coffee with Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me. Tell me your thoughts about my studio and what you know about the space you need to create!
Photo Friday: Your Creative Space
C4ward March Blogathon: Day 7 Prompt
Today and next Friday are PHOTO FRIDAYS with a theme. PHOTO FRIDAY is day where you can write nothing or something. It is up to you! Part of blogging every day is finding ways to make it sustainable. Having one day out of every week that requires only photos can provide a much needed break from using words. Today’s theme for your photos is to show us your creative environment in 5 to 7 photographs (fewer or more if you want).
Interpret “your creative environment” in any way that fires you up and embodies your artistic self. What do you want to show your viewers about the space your imagination inhabits and works in?
Literal spaces: studios, classrooms, theatres, offices, streets, stages, clubs
Figurative spaces: your mind, body, the cosmos, the source
Tools of your trade: canvases, brushes, keyboards, puppets, microphones, costumes, computers, inks, paints, fiber, sewing machines, cameras
Creative outcomes: Various images of your work, perhaps in different stages of development or format
Companions: You or others pictured in your creative environment, including animal companions
Love the Pictures of you working and being Creative!!!ReplyDelete
Christine I recommend having pictures taken while you are creating. You will treasure them as time goes on. Then they are useful for using in blogs. Most of these or all of them were taken with an I-phone.Delete
Your spaces look warm and inviting. And how wonderful to have the loving companions. I can see why creative pursuits abound.ReplyDelete
Helen thank you for seeing the love and knowing how that love supports me in my creativity.Delete
What a wonderful "studio" you have created with your constant companions...Love, love, love the photosReplyDelete
I'm so glad we love seeing each others creative spaces. I feel like I have visited your home and maybe you feel like that with me.Delete
Oooh I love your comments about your partnership. So fine to have a companion in tune together. Love the pictures. Feels so warm and friendly.ReplyDelete
I love the way you create! I think it is simply DIVINE! And your studio is within anyway, right?!ReplyDelete
