This is it! After 2 years of being cramped in a small corner of Maggie’s studio, I now have my very own space again.
With Maggie recently settled in her new studio in Kirkcudbright (see Studios), we’ve been revamping the room she vacated.
The yucky green carpet that was here when we moved in has been rolled up and put in the attic; the walls have all been given a fresh coat of white paint; the creamy-yellow ceiling, door, skirting board, window frame and radiator have also been painted white; and finally, on Monday, a new carpet was put in.

I’ve also installed a set of white venetian blinds in the window (which I discovered too late are about 2cm too narrow for complete comfort, although the next size up would have been 28cm too wide).
The reason I wanted venetian blinds is it means when the sun is coming through the window, I can play with the wonderful effect of the shadows created by them – all very film noir.
Now all I need is some people to photograph...
