As promised, this is the final post about my trip to San Luis Obispo, CA & the subject today is a quick peek into the studio of Diana Frey. Artist & Teacher Extraordinaire. Her studio is in her garage. YES! Imagine being able to sit in your outside studio & NOT SWEAT TO DEATH!!!!! Since today was 106 degrees (yes, we broke the 1980 record of the most above 100 degree days in a year) so I can’t imagine. Beautiful pots of flowers grace the entrance. And Chloe her mannequin was all decked out in a new prom dress & necklace.
And Chloe had a new necklace which was shown in the recent Bell Amore Magazine. I know Cindy will LOVE the bride necklace.
One of the first things to catch your eye on the right hand side is a HUGE shelf of stamps.
No lack of inspiration here! And since we were doing PMC Silver Clay & you use stamps… The possibilities were endless.
Behind that was a favorite of mine… a chandi she made in Sally Jeans Class in Washington. I Soooooooooooooooo LOVE this & want to do one too. I think Sally Jean is doing an online class for this in January!!!!!
Let’s look at a few more of her treasures.
A doll she made in another class.
Every where you look you will find treasures!!!!
On this precious shelf (above) that sits right in front of her work space you can see one goody after another. On the shelf is a darling bracelet that she had made with yet another German Doll Head… Does the wonder ever end??? NO!!!!!!!!!
More wonder… Surrounded with all of this how could you not be inspired?
Even inside the house the beauty continues. On her dinning room table there was the most unusual, SO DIANA, arrangement…
And on that sweet table behind this is another manni covered in creations.
My favorite being…
Now, DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE BEEN THERE???? I am telling you that IF you have the chance to take a class from Diana… RUN! Do not walk!!!! Be there for the time of your life! Thank you precious friend for sharing your home, studio, art, & talent with all of us. And most of all… for being MY FRIEND & MY MENTOR! LOVE YOU !
