Mondays are not so bad when you feel a sense of either a) a restful relaxing weekend, or b) A sense of accomplishment. For us it's the latter. It rained all weekend, and it was cold, and grey. The lack of sun may not have allowed us the best light for indoor photos, but we managed. It was all in part a bit of a celebration for our new studio makeover! Here are two detailed photos taken from parts of our studio.
From left to right - a small selection of the many paintings we have bought over the years, there are two vintage botanical prints we picked up in a local op-shop, two landscape paintings by Jeremy Miranda, and two cat paintings by Kristina M aka Queen of The Cats. There are also two new designs from us - a work in progress, titled Blossom. The box in the fireplace was an old discarded cabinet that used to live in a shed, but now houses candles, thread, sewing needles, and bits and bobs that have no permanent home - yet. And old tins make for excellent paper work filing systems! The photo on the right is a collection of photos, our designs in progress, and the vintage drawers were also purchased from the local op-shop. Perfect for storing brushes, gouache, paper, etc. Nice big size drawers! On such a cold day, looking at that fireplace, I can't help but think perhaps some wood should be in there - making my toes toasty warm. Have a great week everyone! More from us soon.
