Studio Complete...Took only 4 1/2 months.
With the help of Mark and David Carder, my husband, and encouraging comments and suggestions from many of you, the studio is complete. I could not have done it without you!!! I have tried to incorporate all of your ideas in this studio. I'm going to put it on a tour list next year and give Mark and David the major credit. It may even bring in a few new members to DMP. @MeganS
I took your suggestion about having more carpet protection and added another mat. And since I couldn't find a set of wheels with at least two brakes, I'm wrapping the back wheels with a rag to keep it from sliding just when I paint. Both good observations Megan. @martenvisser
I took your mention of the dust factor - another good observation - and solved it with wire and lightweight bed sheets. I cleaned up the studio just before I took these photos. You wouldn't believe what a mess it was before and is now. If you have any questions or observations on how I can improve this workspace, please comment. Hope this serves as inspiration to some of you. Oh, and I want to add that we built the drying rack because we have no wall space left to lean wet canvasses against as both Mark and David recommend. Their recommendation of leaning canvasses wet side facing the wall, away from falling debris and dust, is the easiest and best way of drying canvasses. Summer
