congratulations! Looks like a great space but yeah that view may well make it hard to get anything done during the day.

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!!!

we are looking at places for when my husband retires. I want to go back to the space and the Mountains and the freedom.

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
