An empty space with just four white walls, and a large mirror. Then the furniture and stuff moved in, yet it needed something to kick it from room to studio.
There's nothing quite as instantling inspiring as a child, inhibition free. Son loved the idea of the entire wall beign covered in lining paper so he could doodle EVERYWHERE so off he went with his marker. Next day he got out the paint and created his own uninhibited Jackson Pollock style paintings.
Meanwhile eldest daughter got drawing in her sketchbook, and realised that sometimes things take on a life of their own. Then she spilt dirty water all over her paper, a disaster one minute but 30 minutes later it dried to look like leather, so she was more than happy.
I made a whole pile of small collages, just because I could. :)
Pictures coming later.
