This weekend, before Hurricane Sandy hit, I had the pleasure to be invited to an all day art day with 5 other women artists at Corrine’s new art studio. I could live there. Well, not really, it doesn’t have a bed, but ok, I could stay there all day, every day and create art. See Corrine’s blog post about it here.
So, the bottom line is… 6 women, creating art.. with all the supplies offered to you, not worrying about flinging paint around (yes, I did that). We all brought food and art supplies to share. The Art Storm ladies were… Corrine, our hostess, Karen, Mandy, Barbara, Urvashi and myself.
This is the studio from the front. It’s downstairs from a deli and used to be a florist shop.
Inside the door when you enter the building… and inside the studio. Just look at those walls where you can stand and paint or hang up your art to dry. I was like a witch in a broom factory.. happy happy. (got that from the new “Geico” commercial).
One corner of supplies.. and another corner of paints… hullo? Can you stand it?
I chose to do an art scroll (made from vellum). I don’t think that’s what Corrine called them. “Scroll Journal”? I think, right Corrine? But when I walked in her studio and saw them, I new what I wanted to create.
I decided to tack one up on the wall and do my mixed media magic.
Here is what it looks like all rolled up. I am certainly not done with it. I have to do the other side too! I think I need to bring it back to Sparkle Days Studio to finish it. (hint hint).
Here is our hostess, Corrine.. Ok.. don’t judge her from this pose.. she really is a calm woman. I made her do this.

Thanks, again, Corrine for a great day. Thank you, Storm Ladies, for the fun and camaraderie. Visit Sparkle Days Studio online or contact Corrine for her studio workshop schedule.
Thanks, everyone for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the post. Would love to hear from you.
