In the Studio 2016…..

In the Studio 2016 wishing our readers a very happy, albeit a little belated, New Year. We hope that you had a lovely festive season and are now keeping well and happy in 2016.

It has been a few weeks since our last Christmas post, mainly due to the fact that I have taken a little time off at the start of January. Both Nicholas and myself worked extremely hard in the few months prior to and right up to Christmas. We both worked full days and many evenings to meet our deadlines. I felt I needed a few weeks to recuperate, get a little refreshed, ready for work in 2016.

We haven’t been sitting twiddling our thumbs though! I have spring cleaned our cottage, cleared out many things that we don’t need or use any longer, which our local charity shop were pleased with. We decorated our bathroom and kitchen. Also we are in the process of revamping our spare bedroom ready for guests this year. Introducing some new textiles, blinds etc has refreshed our cottage and it feels lovely聽to have an organised home. I have also started to paint our kitchen chairs. I have plans in the spring to sand the kitchen table top down to oil it and paint the legs to match, however we need to wait for some warmer dryer weather to sand the table聽outside.

Spring Cleaned In the Studio 2016….

As you can also see we have also spring cleaned in the studio and added some new furniture. The first photo below shows my new set up of storage units under my desk. These house my art materials, admin and packaging items. Nicholas has now got rid of his office聽chair which had to be 15 years old and replaced it. He has invested in a聽vintage wooden boxes for his paints. Plus has a new larger wooden trolley for his paints, along with a super new wooden pallet. He is now much more organised and has been back working on his paintings for the last week or so.

I hope you like the photos, I have lots of posts to follow. We have some lovely photos from clients with their portrait which I will be adding. Stay tuned! 馃檪
