My new studio is in the back of a dress shop. This is quite a change from the third floor walk up in an empty building where I painted mostly alone for 4 years.
I thought artist should be alone to work and it seemed nice and monastery like. But I am a person that thrives on people being around me. And with that said it makes more sense to be in a peopled place.
It is like the sky opened up and the dress shop owner came into my life and we clicked and then the studio in a dress shop idea was born. It is not like I was thinking I should move to a dress shop. But now that I see it in the flesh, it is like this idea painted itself into my life without me even trying. Everything just happened. One thing after another.
I am so thankful for the first studio because if not for it I would not have been here now.
This blog is about little steps that lead to a new place. Little inconsequential things, become monumental in the big picture. The big picture is made of lots of little things going someplace you don’t know about yet. Isn’t that exciting to think about.
It’s like you are driving the car but you aren’t driving. someone else is. Each of us had a new studio being formed all the time. The wonder of it all is really quite beautiful.
