Today – What’s On Your Work desk? Wednesday – I show you two photos of my work desk. My desks are positioned in an U-shape… I work at the table that is right in front of the window (with light from the North-West it is the ideal space for making art!) With one chair-turn to the right, I sit at the computer. The desk to the right also holds my drawing tablet – I work at the computer with a pen – a scanner and a small, plastic archive drawer. It is a rather dull corner to show so I never photograph it. The table to the right, however, is the most interesting. I use that desk to lay stuff out of my hands, but it also holds projects that are not finished (or ongoing,) and pages that I’m not sure off and that I want to take a fresh look at in the morning.
WOYWW #299 – Desk to the left
Today there is a page I made for ‘The Documented Life Project’ on my desk. I made it for last week’s challenge (‘Repeating Elements’) I’m not sure if it needs text on the open (black) space or if I should leave it this way.
Here’s the desk in front of the window. I’m working on a weekly spread in the Chronicles art journal.
That photo book to the left is such a find! I visited the second hand store to buy music sheet paper and was already on my way to the checkout counter when I saw this book lying on a table… I took a quick look at the pages and added it to my stack right away. It’s full of beautiful photos from (cloudy) skies and it was a bargain (one – yes 1 – Euro!) I cut out one photo already to use on my weekly spread (see desk photo.)
What’s On Your Work desk? Wednesday is hosted by Julia from the UK. Artists from all over the world post a photo of their desk on their blog and leave a link at Julia’s blog. This week’s list with WOYWW-participants is published HERE More info about this event (’cause everyone is invited to join) can be found HERE.
Next is a picture of last week’s art journal spread (I create a spread in my Chronicles journal after the week is over, so I created this last week for the week before… that’s my routine.)
Thanks for visiting my blog today.
I’m off to have coffee & lunch now but I hope to be back in an hour to visit a bunch of desks this afternoon. See ya!
