In all fairness I must admit -- the good news I'm speaking of is really -- just FOR ME! After the hellacious storm hullabaloo, I welcomed a visit to Seth Apter's blog, The Altered Page.
And what to my wondering eyes should appear
but a post of my own that brought me good cheer!
Remember that I told you about someone asking for pictures of my studio? Well, it was Seth. On Saturday, September 20th, Seth's post was The Pulse Spotlight: Sally Turlington. Golly, he used every picture I sent him and the descriptions, too. He made my day, week, month -- year! What a guy. I am so thrilled.
Seth said that some of his viewers have mentioned that when they click on some of the pictures in his post, they DON'T get enlarged images. Bummer. Of course, Seth can't stop his whirlwind, generous, action-packed postings to redo all the photos. Gee, I don't see how he gets everything done that he does do for all his blog fans. His is the richest, most interesting, and informative blog that any altered artist could ever hope to visit. So I thought I'd help out and give you a bigger look at the photos of my studio.
First I'll show you a diagram of the studio. Then I'll post the pictures so you can see each spot in the diagram. The pictures start with the wall labeled "1" and go around the studio counterclockwise to each numbered area. The "Photo Legend" will tell you the location of the picture for each numbered area. Of course, you can click on each picture for a large version. The "Furniture Legend" names each item in my studio labeled in the diagram with alpha letters.
Click on images for even larger versions.
Part of the built-in enclosed storage unit is visible beyond the paper storage unit on the far left with collection of Communication Arts Mags. on top, folding work table in foreground.
Only because you are my good friends, I will show you pictures of these cabinets -- open! I wouldn't give these pictures to Seth for obvious reasons -- duh -- I was trying to look totally put together for his post! Looking in these disheveled messes inside the cabinets would have been a definite clue to my real nature! LOL.
11. Bookcase Wall - old telephone book racks keep collection of magazines, books and pamphlets for use in collage. This backs up to the equipment table. White door in the background goes into the restroom.
Notice in the last picture that some materials are showing in the lower right corner. I had pulled the folding table up to the work area for added work space. Almost all my tables and storage carts are on rollers so I can rearrange at a whim. (a necessity for my compulsive self.)
