Well after a day of designing stuff for other people with mixed results I decided to design something for myself this evening. Here is the plan for the bookcase, which will be located around the corner in the alcove of my studio:
The lower section is flared forward to allow me to store books and magazines on the left and paint jars on the right. Midway up is a little 4″ shelf for life’s miscellaneous debris. Everyone should have a shelf for debris. Right now it’s all accumulated on a window sill in the studio. Up top are little 6″ shelves for paint bottles. The big opening at the bottom is an access panel for a water line shut off valve. This book-case will be painted tone on tone like the other shelves and walls in the studio.
I enjoy designing things for myself because of the creative freedom it affords me. Unfortunately the pay is horrific.
On a sad note, today the only polar bear at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo died. He or she was the subject for several of Christine’s works of art. In loving memory, here’s a hand cut paper piece of artwork depicting the (now dead) polar bear (when he / she was alive). Sad. We’ll miss you furry guy (or gal). Happy seal hunting in the sky to you.
