New improved art studio

Ever since I closed my art gallery in February of 2008, I have been working out of a small room that I made into my art studio. Because it was not big enough to do my heavy duty assemblages, I began using the laundry room, as it had a tool bench in it. When I would work on my assemblage pieces, I always ended up in the windowless room working on top of the washer and dryer at times.

After taking a feng shui class, I realized that a room in our basement with the fireplace was actually the "relationship room" on the bagua map. My husband and I didn't use the room very often. Most of the time we just walked through it, as if it were a hallway. My husband is a musician and writes his own songs. He was working out of a small room as well. I decided to make the fireplace room our art and music studio. My husband liked the idea.

Now that it is finished, I can't believe we didn't think of it before! We both are enjoying it so much already. It is enhancing our relationship, because now we are creating new art and music together. I can only imagine how nice it will be in the winter when we can use the fireplace!
