Home again, Home again

I've been telling myself over the past week, "this is my journey". It's become a mantra that I've been repeating over and over again as I've been acclimating to reality after returning from my residency at Peters Valley. Having had a month to paint, I'm getting frustrated by all the small stuff.

Lee called the month away my "fantasy painting month". In a way it was, but I was able to paint clearly without interruptions . . . wait until you see the work in person.

Since returning home, most of my week has been devoted to much-needed business concerns. Additionally I am anxiously seeking a new studio space. The month away made me realize I can't continue to paint and grow my career in an 80 sq.' studio. This emerging artist needs to emerge from her space.

I am considering a space in Newton and have no news as of yet. It would be a great opportunity to expand my studio space, teach more students and have access to a space where I can build larger canvases, photograph my work, and have a small gallery open to the public. Stay tuned to see what happens.

Welcome back! It was such a treat to watch your journey through the residency and that has inspired me to check out opportunities for myself and my art...but also want to say the new work is amazing. DON'T STOP NOW!

Plus: really like the new banner across the head of your page -- I just noticed it.
