creating a creative space

In order to work on an art project I need a certain space. My head needs to be in a certain space, but I also need to be in a certain space physically. I’ve learned that I can not be distracted.

Even when I’m at home I’ll turn my music up really loud or put on headphones.  I have playlists just for creating. The music prevents me from being distracted by whatever else is going on around me and is a constant reminder that I’m working.

I also need a space that has just enough stuff around to inspire me but not distract me. I’m constantly rearranging everything. I recently reconfigured my art area. It works a bit better now, but there are still a few things I need to do. I need a new chair or stool. I was using one of my dining chairs. Any suggestions?

My sister thinks my curtains are creepy.  What do you think?

I like having everything I need in reach.

I just need to find the perfect chair.

Do you need anything special to get you in the creative mood? What kind of space do you create in?
