In the Studio

"An artist is not paid for his labour but for his vision"
-James MacNeill Whistler

The Artist's Studio 1865

Well, I am actually paid for my "labour"...and I'm short on "vision" and motivation this week

During times like these I usually straighten up the studio...maybe put out some flowers, light a candle and explore my shelves for inspiration.  Full of magazines, books and mementos






Some studio/workspaces in which I would never be short of inspiration









-all sources can be found via my Pinterest board here-

Gorgeous studio spaces - someday I would love to have a studio of my own. I hope you find your motivation and vision - I'm sure they are still there - straightening your studio is a great way to rediscover them! XO

I agree with you that when we lose our mojo, one need only straighten the deck and lighting a candle does help! I have all those brilliant studio's on my pinterest board~ ah.
