Inside my studio today .....

Friday, July 13, 2012

 Yesterday I had a clean up and moved my big desk into the corner...I think if you looked back over my blog posts from the last 5 years you would laugh at the amount of times this tiny room has had a face lift....but I can assure you it is a joyous thing for me....Beautiful fresh jonquils that my sweet hazel eyed girl bought me this week, a new coffee table book called the natural home that arrived today, images on my inspire board for the wedding, paper work in its folders, the start of kirstie's birthday presents for next month and of course lots of art journals where I write quotes, clip clippings, draw and plan....

Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.  ~Henry Ward Beecher

Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.  Art is knowing which ones to keep.  ~Scott Adams

Painting is just another way of keeping a diary.  ~Pablo Picasso

Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.  ~Twyla Tharp

Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.  ~Pablo Picasso

  1. Cathy, I feel as though I have had a little visit with you in your beautiful studio this morning!! {which I would so love to actually do...what fun that would be!} I love doing a little rearranging in my studio, too...keeps things fresh, and I often find things that I had forgotten about. Such inspiring quotes...One day I told my hubby about how I used to paint/draw as a little girl, and he said "Always keep her with sure to let her walk with you every day." I loved this reminder b/c I know she {that little girl} is such a part of my heart and soul, and she gives me such inspiration!! I am sure yours does, too!! :) Hugs, sweet friend!!
