What Is A Work Station/Studio?

Someone recently asked if they could see how others set up their work station. I have always been intrigued with seeing pictures of other people’s studios as well. In light of that, I am posting my work spaces.

Computer work is done in my office, separate from the traditional studio.

This is where I spend 98% of my life. Yes, I have a life, but I love what I do. The space is divided up into quadrants really. Upstairs is office, downstairs is studio and inspiration.  I love my yard and have lots of animal company at the studio while I work.  For more on that, look at the pictures below.

We built our office/studio behind our home a 40′ commute

Oh yes, there is one more space, but I won’t show it. You see I’m a writer, and I do my best writing in bed.  So on with the creative spaces.

Sometimes I have to work both inside and out. The porch is great for things like working on the foam of the panther.
As long as it is not too hot, and the project is not that big, I can work on the studio porch.
The inside of the studio is where I get wild and crazy and use power tools!
sometimes I surround myself with nothing but portraits
Here is one of my favorite studio companions Tilly. She comes and knocks on the back door in the morning and is a joy to my heart.
It is important to have “thoughtful” places.
Once a year, everything is cleaned up so that we can have an upside Down Christmas Party. Nighttime at the upside down Christmas party is magical and my favorite part of the evening.
Sometimes, in the morning, I just sit on the studio porch and contemplate work.
