(me) is gearing up for the adventurous work ahead!
Change. I was telling that fantastic artist 'you know who' that my new studio is only a fourth of the size of my old one. One of my fondest memories was painting in a large 'walk-in closet studio' at a previous apartment. So, I really can't wait to have new art adventures in 'studio cubbyhole'.
Change. Since I had to scale down my possessions a bit I shared some of my art books with an artist friend of mine. Some were old - some were new. Some I bought if there was a painting I wanted to neatly cut out with an exacto knife. I hope that she can find something there to add to her treasure of knowledge.
Change. I told the artist JM that I was sending my dog Tiny to a new home. When the time came I actually felt a little hysterical - and couldn't do it. Even after he tried to chew on JM's friend John and have his toes for a snack. 'Just make it a project to Dog Whisper him' my sister said. 'Okay' I said.
Change. I would like to paint a lovely large painting for my home. Maybe 48x48? I have never done this before. It will not be a ballerina. Maybe a garden scene of a woman drinking coffee - with a little dog by her side? Don't know. The adventure is ahead . . .
