Roe Murray - in her studio

Welcome to my painting studio. I’ve taken over one of the bedrooms in my home as my painting studio. It has two windows that face a wooded , peaceful yard and the ceiling slants a bit  on one side. Sometimes I play the radio, often to classical music.

I have three stations or areas in my studio. The first on the left is my Watercolor Area. It has a big old wooden drawing table from art college days. There is also a stool that I painted like a watermelon and a small hot pink metal trash can my high school friend delivered bagels from NYC in.

On the right is my Oil Painting Area. It has an old aluminum easel from college years, a tv table, and a really ancient card table which was discarded and found in the Howard Pyle Studio.

 On the far right is a long table that had been in my Mother’s garage. I use this to prepare canvases , frame paintings, and to set up wet oil paintings to dry.I hang some framed paintings on the walls and tack some unframed watercolors up. Some are old favorites and some are new. Unframed , dry oil paintings are stored under the table.

Spring and Fall are very busy times for artists because most art events happen at that time. It helps if my studio is as organized as possible. Which is difficult!!  I will be on the first Friday in May West Chester Gallery Walk, the Chester County Studio Tour May 18th and 19th  and Crafted in Eagleview on June 9th. Thanks for visiting with me! I hope to see you soon!!
