Martedì: The Studio Updates

Just before I skipped over to beautiful Barcelona last weekend, I took a few snaps of the studio filled with all the trappings of a workspace fit for a bunch of Amiata creatives. Me included, if I can ever get there for any length of time!


Looks like an inviting place to work… 🙂



These two tables will be replaced by a long carpenters-style bench table





The hot corner



There’s still this little matter to be sorted (insert scream emoticon here)



View from the studio toward the piazza

Looking forward to going to work tomorrow 🙂
