The last few weeks have been busy with special orders for the holidays, getting some card designs painted and printed, adding inventory to the website, and purchasing supplies to create new work!!! It is a crazy time of following my dreams, while battling what is essentially a nonexistent budget. Luckily, I live quite simply, and have accumulated a variety of art supplies throughout the years with which to grow my inventory and experiment with (finally:P).
The studio space I have lined up for expanding into is located on the second story of an old brick building in the heart of downtown Middleburgh. It is truly a dream space, in which I can finally take all my supplies out of boxes, and spread out. There is ample room for large projects and a gallery display!...but alas, winter has just begun, and heating costs and homeschooling limit me to my house, and a closet of boxes with which to play tetris when my creative juices have me needing one supply or another not currently at my workspace (the dining room table). For now, I feel like I am growing inside a chrysalis, preparing to emerge with the coming of Spring:) Changes are happening out of sight, and the space is feeling tighter every day, but there is also a promise of freedom and beauty building inside, waiting to be shared with others, when this long season ends.
