In January I could no longer ignore the obvious... if I wanted to feel focused this year the studio required complete reorganisation of all available space. Here are some images from after the clearn-up... no 'before' shots... far too hectic then indeed!
My new scrubbed up table with a basket of macadamia nuts and carved seed pod all the way from Central Australia thanks to the wonderful Candy Herne who lives in the rainforest near Montville, north of Brisbane.
Its as if the space has expanded...
A new vista for when working at the desk top computer in the room next to my studio. I'm loving that separation between studio and computer!
I got this already in a hurry last weekend in time for Sundays first workshop here. The walls needed something so I found various pieces that were ideal to place here.
Love these filing shelves
Cup of tea in the studio anyone?
Loved having a small all day workshop here last Sunday... worth cleaning up the studio for! Messy work was conducted out the back on the grass by industrious participants Sue, Lorraine and Wendy.
This was the day before the heaviest rain we've had in ages... I was glad for the excellent weather... we had a great day!

Great to see the range of approaches. We looked at diverse artists for inspiration. Brice Marsden's work led to collecting twigs and trying them out as painting tools instead of brushes.
Geometry in various forms of art was another tangent.
after the workshop... the table top has disappeared.
The room was well and truly christened for the year's work to take place in. It feels so much better than the highly packed space it was before. I spent the week working on concertina books ...picking up where the class left off.
Photos of that to come next!
