I think a lot about how make a creative space that I’m excited to enter and easily use to grow my creative process. I want my studio to be a place that’s a short journey away: no prepping, no gathering supplies, no looking for materials, and no reorganizing to make the room I need to work. Over the past few years, I have been adjusting and tweaking my studio to get the space to be just right. I finally feel like things are pretty much perfect for my journey.  Your creative process is going to be different than mine. This means that you might need more space than me. You might use more art materials than me. Perhaps, you need a large easel versus the oversized table that I make my work on? Whatever the case, think your space through to make it meet your needs.   This blog is an invitation to revamp your art making space. Attached you will find a photo of part of my studio. It shows two solutions that give me what I need for my creative process to be unencumbered. The open wall cabinet puts materials that are used often at my fingertips while providing an easy to access home for supplies when not in use. The shelf for my inks is another handy solution that lets me see all the colors available to me at one time. These are simple solutions that give me more time to be inspired and less time hunting, digging, and fussing. Create a welcoming place to stop and create on your journey by considering your own solutions. What will work best for you? This blog is a challenge to rework your space. Make it someplace where you can make more art more often on your journey!

tears for dancing

Tears for Dancing, Age 42

The older I get the less I think about what I can get out of this life. Bad things happen here on Earth and no one is immune. I see my parents suffering, I watch terrible things happen to my friends and I see catastrophic events that create hell on Earth. Revelation 21:4 promises that someday God will wipe every tear from our eyes and the old order of things will pass away. I’m beginning to think that this promise isn’t so far away: it’s just waiting for us at the next stop. Maybe when we die we trade our tears for dancing and enter Heaven. Until then, I'm going to paint, I'm going to write, and I'm going to share when I find hope in this life. That's why I'm here at Journey on Canvas.
