Creative Spaces

Friday, August 29, 2008


















Virginia Woolf was famous for stating that "a woman must have money and a room of her own in order to write fiction."


I'm lucky, I have two! One is a writer's studio in Mom and I share. It's in her empty, clean and luxurious garage. And I have a freestanding art studio in my own back yard! (It is really a Tuff Shed my husband drywalled and laid Pergo flooring in for me!)

I have smaller creative spaces too . . . like in my art journal or on canvas or a wall or this blog. . . Where are yours?

My creative spaces are all over the house, mostly portable:

* My desk with my main computer in a nook in my laundry/library/sewing room.

* My two laptops (one is old, with Linux on it) go anywhere I want to be. The old one has been on three continents.

* My camera travels the world with me.

* Various tables are pressed into service, depending on the size and duration of a project.

Love that you spread your creativity everywhere--sounds as if you are in "full bloom"!

Your photos are gorgeous! Space is a bit of an issue for me since I moved in with The Boyfriend. We bought a very open plan house. Great for parties, not so hot for creative solitude. I lived alone for eight years before moving in with him, and I miss it!

I love your Google Earth widget at the end of your blog! Can you share it with me? I can't find a link to get to it myself.

We like many of the same things! I used the same Clarissa Pinkola Estes quote on my vision board!

Also, I love the Anais Nin quote you used!
