I guess I'm about halfway there.........but have started doing some painting, because I can't take the unpacking and arranging anymore. The photos don't really give much of a sense of the feeling of spaciousness here, which is mostly due to the high ceilings. I am located in a building which is also the town's only gas station, and the view out my lovely double doors is of the gas pumps, which is a little odd.............but in a rural area like this which is also a major tourist attraction, one is fortunate to find a good studio space, no matter what the setting might be.
I have more unpacking to do, and need to find some suitable storage system for art supplies. I have set a date for my new studio "Open House"--which will be the last Sunday in Feb (the 24th) and by that time, things will be a bit more together here. Don't know what I will have finished of new work (if any) and will probably not be stocked with cards at the rate I'm going, but it will be a celebration of a new beginning for me, and I think that it's important to acknowledge these thresholds, whether one is "prepared" in a business sense or not.
So I raise my glass in a toast to all my artist friends...........may 2008 bless us all with unlimited creativity and the will and energy to make it manifest!
