My art studio is getting a bigger and better spot. Plans have been in the works for some time now and some progress has finally been made. I’m moving my studio to our basement. Now as dank and depressing as this may sound, it’s not too bad in my case. While part of our basement is dark and dank, my part is under the newest part of the house and already has a door with glass in it and we’ve just freshly painted the walls. They’re concrete block walls, but at least I don’t have to worry about splashing paint on them!
The door with the glass in it is to my greenhouse and the hubs has bought me 2 large windows to face my new pond (that still isn’t quite finished) so my studio will have a great view of the pond, lake and woods. I’m so excited I can’t hardly stand it. I can’t wait! I wish you could see it, well at least the vision I have in my head for it. I’ll have my plants around me all seasons and around for inspiration in the studio.
I need to come up with a snazzy name for it. So I thought I’d ask all my online friends what kind of creative names you can come up with. Any ideas? I was thinking something to do with gardens and art since my greenhouse will open to my art studio. I’ve been thinking about it for a while and haven’t come up with any good names that didn’t sound like all I did was garden design or paint just gardens. Names like “Garden Studio” “Greenhouse Art Studio” “Jaime’s Art Garden Studio” nah… none of them work. Should I just keep ArtsyFartsyMe? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
Here’s some pictures of the mess.
before – the stuff has been moved around a bit, I didn’t live with it quite this messy!
the future window wall – see the red lines, those will be windows
bye bye sickly pink walls
clean slate of the other side
My greenhouse – also a new entrance to my future art studio – mess will be cleaned up 😉 Oh, I also can access my studio from inside the house if you’re wondering

If you’ve created your studio lately (or not) and found some must have’s or wish’d I would have’s I’d like to hear about them. Also, I need some better lighting. Does anyone have any great lighting ideas? The windows while producing light are under our deck which is facing west.
Thanks for looking and I’d love to hear some of your studio names or ideas.
Artist, dreamer, gardener and nature nut. I love iced tea, music, scary ghost movies, growing all kinds of plants especially tomatoes and houseplants and enjoying my life in the country with my husband, son and our 3 cats and dog.
Find me in my art studio attached to my greenhouse painting all the beauty that surrounds me.
