40 Inspiring Workspaces of the Famously Creative–via Buzzfeed, (+1 via Here)

An artist friend wrote yesterday to pass along a link she knew I”d love, and ooooohhhhhhh was she right. “40 Inspiring workspaces of th Famously Creative,” originally posted on Buzzfeed by Summer Anne Burton. It’s brilliant.

Maureen O’Neill, a talented artist and friend living in Tarboro, NC, wrote yesterday to pass along a link she knew I’d love, and oooohhhhhh was she right. “40 Inspiring Workspaces of the Famously Creative,” originally posted on Buzzfeed by Summer Anne Burton. URL links to all below. I also asked Maureen if I might post a photo of her own studio space, and she obliged with this luminous photo.  The Buzzfeed post follows. Enjoy, and let me know what you think.

Btw, I’m still digging out from The Move and other writing deadlines but will be back on my own blogging two feet shortly… Meanwhile thanks Maureen, and of course Summer Anne and Buzzfeed!
