Stick It To Me!

click to enlarge

I've almost completed my new studio space.  I say almost because I'm not going to stop collecting objects of beauty to inspire me. Salli and Nate sent out a challenge to their recipe and map loving illustrators.  If we post a shot of our studio space they'll pin it on Pinterest.  Well, my boards were empty until a few days ago.  I finally started sticking the Voodoo doll.  Here's my link. Ouch!

I did a collage because it would be impossible to photograph all my favorite things in one shot.  The top two photos are close ups of my wine cork push pin board.  Drinking all that Vino to make the board was a hard job.  But somebody had to do it!  The top right photo is a close up of my new denim pockets rug.  It brings a smile to my face on a daily basis.  The middle photo is a close up of an old door from my farm.  It is from a Sears refrigerated building.  Yes, I said building.  The bottom right photo is a kooky wooden sculpture I bought at an art fair last summer. I added the camera.   And the bottom left is a childhood toy.  Cute!

The top left photo is part of my Mom's old type writer.  The middle photo is a growling wooden sculpture from Guatemala.  And I have many fond memories of playing the Which Witch? game as a kid.  Thank you ebay.  The bottom left is my cuckoo for cocoa puffs clock.  The middle is a photo I purchased at an art fair last Summer.  An Owl sitting in the window of an old barn.  How perfect to hang on my weathered door.  I love barn boards.  The middle right photos are a Red Wing Crock and one of my orchids.  The middle bottom shot is a container made of old yard sticks.  Cool.  And the bottom right is a little box that I made with my Mom one Christmas.  A long time ago.  


Now for a little vignette I did in my studio.  I'm posting it for hitched.  The theme du jour over at www.illustrationfriday.com  The dog is hitching a ride of course!

Lovely! She is so stylish with that great outfit. (I am a big fan of striped pants. Maybe I should get a pair since I always comment when I see them!) Adorable dog catching snow, and the poor kitty looks like she feels left out!

Also, oh my gosh! Which witch! I LOVED that game. That one and Mousetrap, super cool with all the parts. Cool clock and also that tiny box you made for you mom looks really cute.

I love seeing all your treasures! It's so interesting to see how other artists surround themselves with inspirations. Very cute "hitched" too!

The space you have created is amazing Sharon. I've been thinking about redoing my office and you have given me some ideas. Love your kooky wooden sculpture.
