{a chocolate set from my mom}

Today I've been musing about how best to store still life items in the studio... My current way is similar to the mad antique shop that is best seen in travel books but not something to live with. I've found inspiration from Susan Abbott's studio. It is beautiful, I especially like her shelves.

How do you organize your still life props? Do you know of any other great studios? Please share the link as I would love to see.

I am struggling with the same situation. I have limited space for my growing still life objects. I enjoyed the above mentioned shelves. My studio is small and I battle space.
I really enjoy your beautiful work.

Wow! She is organized in a way I will never be! You raise a good question - I need to work on this!

Your work is getting stronger all the time. I've left you a little gift on my blog :)

Hi Linda, I can understand the battling with the space you have. In my last home my studio was 8x8 ft with one wall being given over to deep IKEA shelving, so that left only 6x8 ft to paint in...

Last Cup - I agree Susan Abbott is way organized, but it is always a good to have an ideal to strive for!

Thanks Veronica! I am glad you have been stopping by. And thanks for the nomination :)

Hahahaha, you should my still-life objects. They are STREWN and PILED UP and FALLING OVER and STACKED randomly. Also covered in continually gathering dust and cobwebs. :)

Hahaha Jala, I think everyone must struggle with keeping still life objects organized!
