It has served me well, providing me with a wonderful space to create new paintings and pottery, hold open studios, and have collectors drop by. It has also been great just to have a place to escape to, especially in the winter time when I am feeling hemmed in. I have enjoyed it in the form it came in with a white exterior and red trim and window boxes but felt it was time for it to get a new do this summer. (The smaller building is my husbands shed)
One of the beautiful things about having a college kid home during the summer is the availability of cheap labor :0) My daughter came home at a time when it didn't make sense for her to look for a
summer job, so she did a lot of projects around the house to earn money. Having the wonderful artistic
sense that she does, she and I went to pick paint colors to give the studio the pizazz to match my work.
She worked hard and did a great job and now I am just delighted to look at my studio when I go outside everyday. It just looks so happy against the green surrounding it and is a place that I am even more proud of to bring clients and friends to see my work!
