I usually get up at 5:30 a.m. M-F to paint until time to get ready for the office. Sometimes it's the promise of a new painting that compels me, sometimes it's the thought of my favorite music playing in the studio (love Slacker radio classic jazz).
The trek down the stairwell to my studio used to be a bland, gray descent, but take a look at the stairwell to my studio now (before and after). French blue handrails, swirly rugs, and steps painted caramel (or peanut butter - yum!).
The quote on the wall is one of my favorites. "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." Pablo Picasso Many thanks to my husband, Larry, for helping to make my daily journey an inspirational one.
