Did Picasso get Paint on His Toes?

As artists most of us create in spaces called studios.
It is amazing how we all want to get a peek inside the space of a master artist.
We study the possibilities of creating and delve into the artists' thought process.



One of the luxuries of having a home studio is I can paint at all hours.



In my process of working with acrylics I use both very textured thick paint
and also very wet drippy paint. I alternate between using an easel and placing works of art on folding tables so I can make adjustments in my studio accommodating different size canvases and to also adjust where the natural light falls, as I have a northern and a western window. 

Artists have so many different styles of working, and their studios are as diverse.
Take a peek at some of these I have on Pinterest .

I am aware that I am not super neat painter when it comes to splatters on the floor,
possibly a wall, table, my clothes, or even my toes.
I wonder did Picasso always wear shoes?
Or perhaps did he paint barefoot or in sandals like me?

What a fun post Robin. I like working at home too, but I don't have the luxury of being able to splatter and drip as I please because I work in my dining room. Looks like you have a great space. And it looks like Pablo liked to work in his underwear. To each his own. :)

My messy creativity happens in the kitchen while cooking. No walls or countertops are safe!

From the photo it also looks like Picasso painted in his white boxer shorts.
:-)
Signed,
all my clothes and shoes have paint splatters on them,

GREAT post Robin!
I, too, LOVE being able to work in my studio at any hour - in pjs and barefeet. I have to watch for pins sometimes, and some pjs have paint splatters...
Creativity comes at any time - we, Artists, have to accomodate no matter what we are wearing...LOL!
