That first picture with all the plastic sheeting made me think of "Dexter" ... yikes! :D :)

 

I do envy your view and believe it will inspire some fabulous work! Congrats.

Great view. You're lucky to be in Montana. I lived there for 31 years and I miss it a lot. Nice studio. Should be easy to heat. Enjoy the view!!!

It reminds me of Robert Frost's poem "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening."......especilly the phrase:

 

My little horse must think it

To stop without a farmhouse near

Between the woods and frozen lake

The darkest evening of the year.

 

And the final phrase:

 

But I have promises to keep

And miles to go before I sleep,

And miles to go before I sleep.

this forum filters the word strange? that is strange!

 

2 days of good work so far, and the window is no distraction, pure bliss

I saw the plastic, and had a similar thought, that Chris did.....Though I was thinking a little more a long the lines of American Psycho.

Wow oh wow.  In my studio my windows are all high that they cannot be seen out of.  I do not think I would ever get work done with that view.

That is simply an amazing view.

 

Like Brian, my windows are high up, and small, as it's a basement studio. 

 

The only way I'd have a good view, is if you moved my house to the edge of town, and my studio to the main floor.  Then I'd see some rolling corn fields all year round.

it is a great place to work, cass, and i wish you many years of enjoyment there.  

 

i have a view of the potomac river in all it's moods.  the only trouble is that it is what i am looking at right now, not a view from the studio at the rear of the house.

The view is great but what is really nice is the natural light,  I had a studio in a basement for 13 years with no windows.  I have a great view in my current studio but I was more concerned with the amount of sunlight than the view when I built it.  Enjoy your new studio.   Denice

thanks all, this is the first view of any kind i've had in 20 years of clay...what i'm loving abou tseeing the lake is that it in never the same view twice, every day, every hour of the day, there is some new, subtle aspect to it, always some thing new to see

the big thing i notice is, i can see...when bright, directional sunlight is on the edge of a pot you are throwing,, you see EVERYTHING.  i actually think this window is upping my quality

Now you're just bragging, and making MySpace look dungeon like.

 

you taking applications for short term resident artists?..... (Ps. I went to cooking school)

 

What direction does window face? (Jealous)

sorry biglou, you are required to do at least 5 years in a dungeon before moving up to a woodshed or one car garage. no way around that

 

faces southwest, afternoon sun, if there is any , is blaring
