The Davis Art Studio Tour turned out to be a very pleasant event. I met many people – artists, friends, friends who met old high school friends. And sold enough to make it worth the while to do it next year.
Lesson learned is to not to over do it with the food. Nobody really has time to slow down and eat. And have a sign in sheet.
My studio is in the front part of a two car garage. The other part is an office area with an inside utility/full bathroom. (Our house was originally 1000 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms and 1 full bath). I’m usually working in the studio in the afternoon. The sun shines directly into the garage in the morning and is behind my house in the afternoon. I work with the garage door wide open and blinds purchased from Home Depot are used to provide more privacy. I don’t have to worry too much about fumes when I’m working with oils or encaustics.
