A Simple Art Studio Set Up Anyone Can Do

Someday I’d love to have my own studio. And you’ve shown me how to go about setting it up. Thank you!

Second Sight Journey

Whether you work from home, or you have a studio separate from your house, it’s so important to have your own space to be creative.

The sun was gleaming in the sky

The trees lit up with joy

The shadows played ‘I Spy’

I saw the flowers sway

To the gentle breeze

The bees flew in threes

From flower to flower in such ease!

With a smile that could melt the sun.

Oh! That look, she got me hooked!

With every step she took,

she breathed life in every nook

and left not a single brook

lay lifeless, in despair.

Then she stopped

And stared into the distance.

There she stood

under the arching trees.

She was ready to depart.

I yearned for the magic to last,

the magic, on me, she cast.

Then for a fleeting moment,

she saw me,

As if to say, ‘I’m here, I’m everywhere’
