in terms of your things, what does your space (studio/office or living area) look like.
I’ve had many studios over the years, some shared, some single. Recently I moved into a condo where I turned the room next to where I sleep into a drawing space. Lots of good natural sunlight, lots of odd people passing through the backlane to where my view is. I’m still sorting the kinks and nitty gritty out, it’s only been two weeks since the change. I don’t have music or a computer, but my guitars and mandolins are in the next room. My drawings are scattered and the older ones are stacked around the table which is made of two wire shelves with a flat piece of wood.
Where do you normally get your things?
I thrift shop, and rarely go into new stores anymore. I enjoy rummaging and finding the find of all finds.
what is your prize possession/”thing”/collectible/tool?
My Grandpa Bill’s stamp collection, it’s a dealer’s collections, also his banjo and guitar I inherited from him after he passed away.
