Studio Sunday/A book...

I take just as much pleasure from casual creations propped about the studio and house as framed pieces and more polished work. I fell in love with this light green paper at Artist and Craftsman Supply in Saugus, MA (there are shops around the country—good prices and interesting selection, more things available in the store than online) and it made a perfect home for the Arabian proverb. I did the lettering and decoration with my pentel brush pens from John Neal. This is the shelf above the scanner and printers (color inkjet and black and white laser). The basket is where bills go—how nice to hide it behind a happy thought. In front are film cards and an ink cartridge. To the left—some photos to be be filed and some index cards where I will write favorite quotes. I store most information in the computer but I'm not ready to give up the pleasure of leafing through cards of quotations. On the right an electric pencil sharpener. And above paper storage and books.

I love this, Susan! So beautiful and so true! I feel the same way about casual artwork. When I discover it at friends' houses it feels almost like a gift for looking closely.

Oh, and I hear you about Artist and Craftsmen Supply. We have one here in Portland, and I visit it often for inspiration.

Looking forward to seeing you in a couple of days!

Thanks Gigi. It's such a joy to work so freely and then have it be part of everyday life. See you in Portland.
