Mobile Artist Station

There are lots of opportunities for being creative and I’ve been on a quest to fit it in the schedule whenever possible. One of the biggest time slots that seem to be unproductive in my day are evenings. I used to spend a lot of time in my office on the computer working on projects but heard on more than one occasion about how unsociable I was becoming so I returned to the living room sitting in front of the television. I have trouble just sitting so I’ve adapted projects to work on while I am couch-bound for a few hours. 🙂 This is my current set-up as I’m working on magazine pages:

Hey, it works, right? 🙂

The only thing I ask is that once you are finished having fun with it, please take a moment to snap a picture of your creation and post it on my Facebook Page so I can see it.  I’m excited to see what everyone ends up doing with it!

Fun, fun, fun!

♪Happy Blog Anniversary, To Me!♫

That’s right! Today is the anniversary of my first blog post on January 20th, 2008! Four years, 562 posts, 1022 comments and 336 subscribers later, here I am! Still blogging away, plus starting a new digital art blog this year. I don’t think I imagined I’d do this much with it but it sure has been fun! I re-posted the image from my first entry today, on that post it is very tiny and I was excited to even have gotten that much figured out. 🙂 Heck, I’m still figuring out things!

Thanks for reading, commenting and passing this blog along to your friends. Your support and feedback are awesome!

Blessings,

Lynne

Productive times!

I am delighting in my time here in Michigan! Work is flowing and I am finding a wonderful rhythm to my days. Waking, working, resting, eating all fall into place so easily when I am in a creative space such as this! I have attempted to attach an image of a new mandala that I finished today. I’ve skipped around from assembled pieces, mini shadow box art, large canavses and creating on paper quite happily. Thursday there will be a small reception to show my work so the next two days will be busy finishing up pieces in different stages and getting them all ready to show. I will be sure to post photos once I have everything hung up!

Works in progress from Michigan

As I type this I am sitting in a 300 square foot studio space near Lake Michigan. I arrived on Sunday and am delighting in the time and space to just be creative without distractions. I’m (hopefully) attaching an image of a couple canvas pieces I started yesterday. Primarily I’ve been working on constructing mixed media but the canvas has been a fun side project to play with as other work dries. I will post some progress images from time to time but my access to the internet is via my phone so its a bit of a process to accomplish. I also scheduled periodic posts to appear while I am away. I am so thankful to be here, to my hosts and to my husband for being “in charge” of the home and family while I am away!
