It's been months since my last post on the blog. I've missed writing and uploading my small pieces. The habit of that seemed to have kept a rhythm in my life, which I've most definitely been without lately. I'm hoping to regain that rhythm.
I've moved my studio to a new place, an artist's dream in Villa Rica, GA. An old warehouse with polished concrete floors, original brick walls and exposed rafters and pipes. All I have to do to clean up is pull a dry mop around the room. No vacuums, no carpet spot removers, no constant worrying about ruining anything. A kitchenette, a separate room large enough for a bed and my computer. Couldn't ask for more. And the studio is large enough to accommodate 5 other artists and a model, if I move furniture around. So I've taken to hosting a one-day workshop, once a month, which pays for my new little refuge. My February and March classes filled.
"Lisa", above, was the model from my first workshop here. She's framed and ready to be shipped to Watts Fine Art, a new gallery opening in Zionsville, IN, this spring. From the looks of their web site (www.wattsfineart.com) and Facebook page, I'm humbled to be in such accomplished company. I fear I may be exposed as an impostor.
So anyway, I'm back. Not 100%, but getting there...
