Fun with Art Friends

This past Sunday Susan and Jean and I channeled Jackson Pollock and painted the huge floor cloth for my studio. It took a while to figure out the whole drips versus squiggles thing, but it was messy and fun, and I love the result!

Here we are out on my driveway dripping and splattering (from left to right, Lori, Susan, Jean):

Here's the finished product drying on the driveway after a few coats of varnish:

And here it is in the room:

I love the artsy touch it gives the room, and I think I'll be a bit more free with the paint and inks from now on.

Oh, and I wanted to post a photo of my paper hangers, for those of you who asked. This was such simple, inexpensive, and effective solution. It doesn't impede the door at all. In fact, I forget it's even there when the door is open.

I've been enjoying using my room. Susan and I just hung out on there Saturday night and looked at art stuff and art books and magazines, and it was relaxing and inspirational. My two remaining challenges are my chair, which is not as comfortable as I had hoped (I think it was made for a male derriere), and the lighting, which is just a mess at the moment.

Here's a photo of the chair. If you have any ideas for padding it, please let me know!

Love the floorcloth, Lori! And what a terrific design - no worries about future spills... they'll only add to it!
