My very own art room which I created by re-doing the corner bed room. It has become my personal sanctuary where I can relax in my own world of artistic creativity and forget about the cares of the world.

I owe my love of art to my mother who was an artist & teacher & I began painting at a very early age. After graduating Auburn U, I moved to Atlanta, GA where I was a member of the South Cobb Arts Alliance & attended many local art shows. After living in the Atlanta area for a number of years, I have moved back to my roots in rural Alabama. Art gives me joy not only in creating a painting but also in sharing it with others.
I also have a Zazzle store at: http://www.zazzle.com/vseoriginals

    This is GORGEOUS Vivian. What a wonderful sanctuary!!! Every home should have one! Ha Ha. Nowadays the modern homes all have ‘cinema rooms’ and ‘theatre rooms’ with surround sound, so I don’t see why architects couldn’t incorporate ‘studios’ as well!! I am sure you will be producing some incredible work here.

  • Thanks, Lynda! I agree, everybody needs a place where they can sit back and enjoy doing what gives them fulfilment and for us artists, what could be better than a private sanctuary delegated just for creating art.

    Looks like a great space Vivian. We all except some real masterpieces, now that you have ample room to create. I tell my student all the time that you will paint more (thus improve) if you don’t have to drag everything out every time you go to paint.

  • Amen to that! If it isn’t dragging it out, it’s moving it out of the way. This is the best art spot I’ve ever had since I was growing up and living at home with my folks. My mother was an artist and when our house was added onto, she had her own room built. We shared a lot of time together in that room creating our art. I do miss those days.

    Wonderful shot Vivian. It’s the most important room in the house :o)

  • Yes, indeed you’re right! It is the most important spot in the house! It’s great to have a place where I can leave my stuff out and it not be in the way.

    What a great idea, Vivian! Everyone needs a special place to withdraw to. I’m sure great works will come out of this room!

    Love your art room,…..It looks like a perfect place to create your Awesome Art,…..
    Captured very nicely,….Lovely lighting,….

  • Thanks, John! I worked really hard on this room. For several years, it was used as an asssisted living facility for three elderly cats. They had the whole back end of the house for themselves as they didn’t like the younger cats. When the last one passed away at age 17, I turned it into my art room which was its original purpose. It could still use a bit more organizing, but I can paint in there now.

    Excellent Set Up,,,look at that pretty barn painting hanging on the eisel.

    Rick

  • Thanks, Rick! That painting is finished and it’s the barn with the red roof on Hwy 53 in GA. I’ve even got a barnwood frame for it that I bought some time ago that suits it to a “T”.

    Love the place and the title:)) Such a gorgeous place filled with natural light:))

  • Thanks! It is nice to have a special spot just for “me time” with my art. However, now that I am semi-retired, I’ve found so very many home projects to do that I’ve got behind on art. And there I was thinking that when I was at home more, I’d have more time for art.

    Lynda Robinson is so right about architects creating a space for art at home. It could be a personal art gallery, photography and if later one person decides to start painting there is a room already designed for that purpose (with the right light conditions).

  • Thanks again!

    What a peaceful and comfortable studio! Love seeing your barn painting on the easel. It is a beauty!!! You have nice lighting with two windows.

  • It is nice. I get good lighting from the windows and I’ve got the shop lights overhead if I need more. The flourescent lights are supposed to provide natural lighting, but nothing can beat the real thing coming thru the windows!

    I would love a room like this, everyone needs a Sanctuary xx

  • Thanks! It is nice to have sanctuary space just for yourself. It’s especially useful for artists as it makes it convenient to just leave your stuff out and not worry about it being in the way. I have a radio in there, too.
