Wall Tent Studio Tour | Spring 2013


Since the last Wall Tent Studio update, an entire metamorphosis has been enacted.  These first few pictures show it in it's early stages back in April.  Since then, I've slowly been collecting the tools and furniture to create my dream work space.  It's always a work in progress, but I'm to the point where I have a place for everything and my daily workflow is almost streamlined.  

And that, my friends, makes for a supremely happy Kellie.

The lighting is less than optimal still, as I'm still on the lookout for the right lamp while using our shop floodlight, which, even reflected against the wall, is nearly blinding.

My tent has been through fire and flood the last two years, and is starting to show signs of it's battle against the elements.  Hopefully one day soon I'll be able to take it all down and give it a good scrub - but even now, with it's scars and water stains telling an eloquent story of weatherbeaten indomitability,  it still stands, a home for my hopes and dreams and precious bolts of fabric.

And oh, the rich stories those four canvas walls now hold.

The lost in the 50s Parade

Classic cars.  Chrome everywhere.  It was supremely fun.  And I couldn't help wistfully thinking of the days when the streets always looked like this.


The next morning Aubrey and I were conducting a photoshoot on the lakeshore when I spotted my dream truck again.  You can find it in the parade above - it's in front of the tall building with the nifty zigzag staircase, which is incidentally where my bro works.

This truck is without doubt the visible personification of absolute perfection.  
Right down to the white walls.  And that fabulous retro font on the hub caps.  The tear drop fenders and the split windshield.  
Someday this will be my mascot and I shall go camping and have concerts and sell blackberries out of the back. Perhaps at the same time.

We shall meet again, dream truck.
