  1. WOW! You are doing a huge studio re-do!!!!
    It is looking fantastic :)
    I love the texture on your walls too.
    I cant wait to stop back and see all your final finessing.

    I felt the same way about my old studio. everything was closing in on me and I couldn't seem to get motivated.

    Take care,

  2. Diane, thank you for your comment on my WBC party post. Your studio is looking wonderful! I love the floor, I thought it was really stone! Your drawings are beautiful; I felt that if I reached out and touched the red hair of the 'Elegant Lady' drawing it would feel real. I'm looking forward to seeing your finished studio!

    Blessings,
    Victoria from Brushstrokes
