A Peek into my Studio

Happy Friday! Jennifer from Studio JRU has started a Friday link party where you can get a glimpse into other peoples creative spaces. This week I'm joining in the fun. Here are a few shots from my work space throughout the week... working on my second thought provoking mixed media painting.

I admit, I rarely clean my palette. I just keep loading the paint, and I like it that way. It's like a little painting with its own story.

I like texture!

Yeah, I don't clean my water jar either. I do rinse it out but there is always dried paint on the sides. I like to be surrounded by splashes of color so no need to be too tidy in my creative space. :)

In the background you will see a pantone color book. Absolutely ♥ it!!! Its an old one but that is fine with me. Hubby actually picked it up for free! Can't beat that and I use it all the time. It's not only helpful for printing colors, but for coming up with unique colors for paintings or even for wall color ideas in our home. (We actually just picked a color out of it for painting the outside of our house with!) So if you come by one, I suggest picking it up.

I hope you enjoyed the peek into my creative space. I will share lots more about this mixed media painting you see in the photos next week.
Now stop on over at Studio JRU to check out Jennifer's studio and many other creative souls spaces as well! If you would like to join in click HERE for more info!

Love your creative space! My paint palette looks like that as well... love it! Then when I finally peel it off you can see all the layers of paint underneath. :) Your mixed media painting looks so interesting... can't wait to hear more about it. I may need to keep an eye out for one of those 'popular' color books.

So happy you joined us this week Jodi! It was fun to see what you have been working on! :)

Hi Jodi, I'm intrigued by your deer mixed media piece. Love the color and would love to see it finished. I know I have one of those pantone thingys somewhere. I'll have to dig it out. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Jodi...from another Jodi! I love getting a peak into your studio...I too am a midwest girl...South Dakota...long way from the ocean, but I too, have learned to savor and look for the beauty right where I am. There always is something that I might be missing by not looking!

I look forward to following you on Fridays!
