I always find it fascinating to learn more about the artists that I admire and to see what goes into the creation of their art. The creative process, use of supplies and techniques, and source of inspiration is quite intriguing to me. And for me, the artist studio - the place the magic happens - is a wonderland and a feast.
I have recently purchased two books that I highly recommend, both of which open a window into the studio spaces of some amazing artists. Turning the pages in these books is almost like having a personal invitation into their inner sanctums.
Art Making & Studio Spaces by Lynne Perrella
Inside the Painter's Studio by Joe Fig
And speaking of studios...this theme brings me back to one of my survey questions from the 3rd edition of The Pulse in 2008:
Where does the magic happen? Tell us about the studio, room, corner, desk, table, floor, or wall where you make art and show us one photograph which somehow captures your creative space or a work in progress.
