Studio Revisted



I felt like going back into my studio in the attic of the Blue Barn today. I think I just plain miss it.








In a funny way, since it's been stored away, I remember it through the photos, and it feels more like a real place I've lived in than if it were right in front of me, on a table, in one inch to one foot scale.






As real as my old studio, at home, that also exists, as it was, only in photographs. So much of the world is all in our heads, it turns out.

Amy, AMY!!!! Am I looking at a "mini" studio????? Awesome! I want to go in there.... and poke around...... and PLAY with the crayons.....!!!! How can you have this packed away??? Yes, I know how.... and I am with you on that stuff in your head..... I have my former home and garden all in photos on my computer and they play in random slide show.... just as if I still owned the place!
Please, show me where to see more of your minis... I confess I have missed that info so far....! I am SO impressed!

Oh, Wait!.... I KNEW it looked familiar... more than that "I love a studio" familiar.... I just realized I explored this from Sans! blog way back when I first found her blog and was poking every link she had in my thirst for mini connections.... :)
I am so Glad to make this connection.... and to see the "bigger" picture! Amy... I would keep putting your head in the little rooms and dream away.... we need that... it is medicine for the soul!

Thank you so much for liking it, B.! It's been put away for two main reasons-one was just practical-after I moved out of my condo I just plain didn't have enough room. The second was the more honest reason-I get really into it. And I have so little time to balance making art and working and trying to get out of the house once in a while, it had to be put on hold, but only on hold. I would get so lost in time making stuff for it, it's so free of all the judgements and deadlines that come with everything else-like you know so well, it is the ultimate escape. But it's all in two plastic boxes, ready and waiting. In the meantime, I get to live through yours and San's wonderful and exceptional mini worlds!

I have been to this studio so many times, even when you were not around , Amy :). And today, I spent quite a while here again, staying way too long from work.I always find new treasures with each visit.
This time, it was your art in mini on that table with the threads and the scissors. You should leave a note pad here so I could scribble " I was here".

Actually, I've been thinking about working my wonderful friends into my studio the next time I set it back up, I had started to before I moved. So in a way, I could keep a bit of San's world here, maybe a postcard I could make from one of your pictures to go up on the wall...

I am here again, Amy.

Today it is that corner with the bookshelf. Could have been mine. We share so many books in common.

I know you are on a deadline so I thought I'd come into your studio to check how you are doing :). Don't mind me though. Say hi only when you can breathe again.
