Studio Space!

I've really enjoyed looking at everyones studio/craft spaces on the Folksy forum, and thought I'd share mine.

I don't have a studio as such, just a corner of my dining room. I love my art desk though, it tilts to different angles or lies flat, and has a built in light box and storage on the tressle shelves :) I would try and rescue it if my house was on fire!

It would make me the happiest girl in the world to have my own studio space, but it's a luxury I can ill afford. It'd be awesome to have a room where I could just go in and throw paint around, instead of panicking every time I get paint on the dining room carpet! Somewhere not in my house, for me to escape to, my own little private art world!

I cling to the hope that this will happen someday :)

However, I did have a slightly crazy dream on Monday night that I bought a really crappy old touring caravan and gutted it, ripped everything out of it, and painted it up all crazy colours inside and out- and made it into a studio!

I am totally digging this idea, but do not have anywhere to put a caravan!

It's a dog's life!

I came across the artits MICHEL KECK's dog art work recently during a random google search and I love it!!

She does very reasonably priced giclee prints- if there was a Beagle on there then my bank account would now be overdrawn without a second thought!

In the meantime, this guy is my fave!

Check out http://www.moderndogart.com/ to see the others- let me know who your favourite is!

Sick as a parrot!

Is that even a saying, or in my delerium (is that even a word?!) have I just made that up?

Anyway, so I'm just about recovered from a horrible throat infection that left me unable to talk (properly) and eat, am going back to work tomorrow (should be asleep really right now!) but still feeling like crap- deflated, demotivated and with a serious lack of energy :(

Any hints or tips to get me feeling vaguely alive again?!

(I have however still managed to keep up to date with my A Drawing A Day on flickr!)

"Where Do Broken Hearts Go?"

Ah Whitney, thanks for the inspiration behind my "A Drawing A Day in April" ha!
This song came on my itunes shuffle just after I'd decided to challenge myself to draw every day in April. I thought it was a fair enough question, so today my little broken heart find he's been kicked out :(

Follow my flickr link http://www.flickr.com/photos/victoriamcdonaldart to view each days drawing, which I'll try and upload on the day :)

If you have any suggestions on where broken hearts could go, then post below!
