At long last I have a place for everything and everything is in it’s place! My Sweet Studio perched above the gallery is fully operational.
With the help from my dear friend Jesus Fidel we organized a cabinet with cubbies that manages all of my art supplies and tools. Along the top all of my paints sit in rainbow color order and clearly visible. Above this cabinet all of the show cards and posters showing my art decorate the wall. The room also furnishes a great hat rack, my working desk, easel, retro rug, game station for the kiddos with pink bean bags, a desk that houses my canvas, a frame wall and a small and FULL mini-gallery just atop the staircase.
Attached to my studio is what I call the dungeon. This is an all grey room that holds our excess art from the club, fridge, microwave, AC/Heater equipment, shrink wrap station and materials we use to make the gallery art tags.
I spent most of the weekend in my new space creating. I could find myself spending a lot of time there and looking forward to it! Today Alan, my gallery partner, hosted a figure drawing downstairs as I worked away. I have a wonderful sense of fulfillment. This is a great feeling…
