Studio Panorama Images

360 of the studio - May 8th., 2011.

A clear day, looking north.  This is news.


Yesterday I had visitors to the studio, and so this morning was a perfect opportunity to get some panoramic images with a handy app. I downloaded.  These aren't perfect, but they are way faster and easier than using Photoshop!

One thing I got out of a fun studio visit was that I should begin that lesson plan I've been procrastinating on:  How to Art Blog.  I have a classroom in the Seattle area to present it, but it is hard to nail myself to the desk when the easel beckons.  If I start now, I can make the How To into a series for the blog, and then I'll have my lesson plan.  Two birds; one stone.

My studio is at our farmstead in eastern Washington, near Davenport.  Simple, big and humble would be a good description of my space.  Easy to work in and well organized for the task of making pastel landscapes.



Happy Mother's Day, everyone.

You continue to inspire me! Glad you have a place to teach in this area. Please post info when you're ready to bite the bullet. People still talk about your work at NU and I love the little piece of your art gift hanging in our entry.

That looks like such a great studio! I'm envious. And wow - the view!

Irina said...

The windows! Natural light. Great place to draw masterpieces.

Hi, Rosemarie! I am just getting motivated. I even opened up the power-point and started noodling around with it.

What is your personal preference? A class on basic pastels, or on art bloggong?

Casey Klahn said...

McLisa, you would love the view here. I hope you can visit someday, too.

Casey Klahn said...

Thank you, Irina!

Celeste Bergin said...

What a wonderful place to work Casey! Inspiration is everywhere!
And your studio has lots of room. Can't wait to hear more about your new studio in the works...the foundation is laid?

Casey Klahn said...

Loriann, don't look for the foundation until I can get the plan. Time.

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks for the kudos!

Casey Klahn said...

Thanks, Celeste!

When I do get around to it, I will definitely be using your blog as one example of greatness in art blogging.

That is a wonderful space. Here in NYC I have modeled in many a cold, cramped, cluttered urban space, cubicle-like in a warehouse style building with an industrial view.

Thanks for sharing these pictures, Casey!

Casey Klahn said...

Oh, there's room to breathe, here, Claudia! Thanks for stopping by, all the way from across the big USA.

with that view I would not get any work done.

Casey Klahn said...

John - the view north is endlessly distracting. I keep the binoculars handy.

I see you're acquainting yourself with the iPhone world. It's wonderful, but he problem with the panorama app is that there are no hidden corners. How long did it take to clean the studio? Spiffy!

Casey Klahn said...

Better part of the morning, if you don't count the couple days intensive pick up I did a couple weeks back. Glad you get to see it, Sam.

There are some back rooms for chaos storage, BTW.

Hello from Soap Lake.

E. Washington is especially beautiful this time of year. The landscape is alive with the colors of spring, the light and the sky are amazing.

I would like to know more about your art blogging series, it sounds interesting.

Casey Klahn said...

Hi, anon. I would look here at The Prairie series, which is much about eastern WA. Glad you found us!

Jala Pfaff said...

I envy your studio space!

Jala - my voluminous 12' x 60' space still isn't big enough. I think the rule of thumb will always be - go bigger.
