#95 STUDIO 106
I know, I know, it's been a long time since I've posted a painting. I must confess it is hard for me to paint in the Summer. So much going on. And this Summer I am preparing our home in Kirkland to put it on the market. Slowly we are inching our way toward making Langley our home. It may be a bit premature, but I found the perfect studio space for me in downtown Langley. Though I don't imagine I'll be working there much during these next few months, I will begin to move my studio there and start establishing myself. It is right downtown Langley and is also a commercial space. I'm imagining something like "If the artist is in the studio is open". At least for starters. When I saw the space (peering through the window) I just knew it was meant for me. On Wednesday I signed a two year lease beginning this September. The address is 106 McLeod Alley (I just love alleys) and when asked to produce a name for my business the words "Studio 106" popped into my mind. So Studio 106 it is. It is 400 square feet with 12' ceilings and an entrance on the alley. Meanwhile I am attending a portrait painting class with teacher Liana Bennett. Yesterday was so much fun. I feel so completely in my element in studio settings with easels, paint, brushes and other artists around. We arent' supposed to be working toward a product.....just learning. I will, however, post a few of my "learning experiences" when all is said and done.
