New Beginnings

I’ve got a studio space! After many months (years) of visualization and pondering and questioning, it seemed to happen without much effort. I was researching art studios one weekend and on a whim, I remembered that someone had suggested I try an online forum.

I found something that looked interesting, made an inquiry, got a response right away and went to check it out! Once I arrived, the warm and colorful vibe seemed to fit me perfectly and I decided to go for it.

Shared space

The studio is a shared space where classes are given by artist Pilar Montaño. There are several studios of other artists and businesses in the building, along with Pilar’s studio in front, and mine is a shared space with a lovely former Biologist, Howie Reese about halfway down the hall. Howie paints in oil and likes to do large cubist inspired works.

My wall in Progress

I’ve only just moved in and am inspired to begin working on some larger canvases and create new work for my wall. The challenge will be the bright yellow background. We will have to see how this goes! For now I’m extremely excited and humbled that this has happened as if in an answer to an unspoken prayer…I mean, I asked for it, but I didn’t expect it! I wanted a studio space, but didn’t picture this, but maybe this, and the community working here will lead me to where I am going next. I honestly have no plan…!
