Miniature Monday - Artist's Lofts!

I've got TWO 1/12th scale artist's spaces to show you.  The first is a fantasy loft located on 22nd and Broadway in NYC.  (My mini artist isn't starving!)  Years ago, I worked in a huge space there, and took pictures of the view outside so that I could use it in my mini artist's loft.  I printed the image on 11x17" paper that covered the back wall.

The box is made to fit inside an 11x14 frame.  The original artist's loft was made and donated to my friend's charity for auction.  My Miniature group loved it so much; we re-did it as a yearlong project. Yes, imagine me on the porch, with my table saw, cutting 150 pieces of wood.  I was a sight to behold!  The window wall is made from foamcore and strips of wood.  I made the easel, stool, tables and the spiral staircase.  Some of the accessories were made, some were purchased.

The painting was done by my son; he was 4 at the time, and insisted on contributing a masterpiece!

The next artist's studio fits inside a basketball display case.  It depicts art class in progress.  The beautiful fairy model is made out of polymer clay.

It's amazing what you can do with bits of wood and paper!

If you have any questions, please let me know.  Thanks for looking!
