Indeed, what IS in a name?

Today I have added the word “studio” to my blog address.  It seemed appropriate,  because even though my artroom is now reduced to a 16 square metre space (also a bedroom and office )  it is still the place I go for “me time” to think, browse, write, make a mess,  hide from the TV,  and eventually……….. create.

According to Robert Genn, in the toolkit for making art you need six items:  time, space, series, media, books and desire.    Most of these I have in bigger or smaller amounts. I can set aside time, I have a space, I like to work in a series;  books and media are both available for when direction is needed; desire comes from process, which reinforces desire, which then becomes love.  You need love in your kit.
