Virtual Open Studio 2010 Begins

Welcome to my Virtual Open Studio! So glad you could make it!

I will give you a guided tour, broken up into several manageable segments (posts). Then I will leave you to browse. Please take your time and don't be afraid to ask questions. All of the artwork featured in this Virtual Open Studio was created by me and is available for purchase unless otherwise stated. Enjoy your visit!

When you first enter, this little table is on your left. The papers provide information about me - Stacy Rowan - and my art. This year I also included a print out of my "Why I Am and Art Collector" blog post. Above the table hangs the watercolor "Seasons' Reflections".

Proceeding into this room you see the wall directly across from the entry. Hanging above the sofa is a grouping of three pieces - two graphite drawings and one charcoal. They are "Kitchen Reflections", "Icebreaker" and "Ten Minutes Peace".

The spacing for this groups of works is not ideal, but I was trying to minimize the number of extra holes I put in my walls. Remember these works typically aren't hung here. People are sometimes surprised that I don't live with all of my paintings hung around the house, but I still regularly exhibit this work and I don't want to stare at a blank space when a piece is off at a show.

On the table next to the sofa is this matted original watercolor of a jelly jar. The other small, original painting which is flat on the table was sold during the Open Studio. If you were standing in front of this table and turned your head to the left, you would see another graphite drawing titled  "Want to Play".

Across from the sofa is this corner of the room where two paintings are displayed - "Poinsettias" and "Detwiller House - Center Square, Easton". Below the "Detwiller House" painting, I displayed a basket of note cards as well as some matching note pads.

That concludes the first section of the Virtual Open Studio. Please feel free to leave any questions in the comment area. And a reminder, anyone leaving questions or comments will be entered for the door prize drawing.

What a nice idea to have a virtual studio Stacy!

I'll be featuring you on "who's made a mark this week?"

Thanks Jennifer! I had to work a little to get hubby to agree with the wall colors, but we both love them now.

Thanks Tanya!

Thank you Katherine! I really enjoy hosting my annual Open Studio and this seemed like a good way to include people who for any reason could not attend.
