Obstacle course of life...

Ok, so the last time I posted I was very excited after cleaning and rearranging my studio, ready for a fresh start.

Then as the saying goes "s_ _ t happened" and the water heater in the room next to the studio decided it would give up the ghost and flood half the studio floor.

Well... my hubby and I had been discussing the update of the downstairs for years.  Since the carpet had to be pulled up anyway we decided to jump in!

Now the studio looks like this...

So, no work is getting done with canvas and brush, instead I use a roller, brush, blue tape, gallons of latex paint, and laminate flooring.  Just when you think it's smooth sailing, life steps in to remind you of chaos theory.  At first it's really stressful and frustrating, but if you can hang in there new possibilities appear and something good comes out of it.  (Not without a lot of bitching and complaining I must admit)

Spring is coming and I am thinking of friends and family out there wishing them beautiful days and new possibilities.

Fresh start...

The show is up at Kaewyn!  We had a lovely opening.  Now it's time to start thinking about what comes next.  At first I thought I'd go a whole new direction but after some time realized I want to continue with the same themes.  So it's full steam ahead.  The studio is clean and ready, I have a whole new bolt of pre-primed canvas.  There's inspiration at every turn!
