prepping for creative gatherings

Today the delightful Rebecca Gallop from A Daily Something visited my new studio space to start planning a creative gathering here in November.  

new painting studio in august ♥

Photo:  contemplating a day of quiet gratitude   This year I have been totally consumed with building my new painting studio from scratch. When the studio passed its final county inspection just over a week ago, after a year of record-winter weather delays, local county inspection delays, delivery delays, and general custom construction hiccups, I…

studio restart button

Around here, the big news today is that I finally pushed the restart button on my “new studio” construction project.  The contractor has been fired (not a simple thing to do) and the head of the company, who remembers my original vision from almost a year ago, has taken over the endlessly-lingering schedule.  With grace…

    This is really going to be fantastic!!! Can you see how green I am!! Don’t envy your having to deal with contractors though. I have watched what my daughter had to deal with getting her kitchen remodeled!! UghReplyCancel

    Fingers crossed, Sandy, that things will go more smoothly now. It will be such a relief when I am finally able to move in. All this waiting has been hugely counterproductive. 🙂ReplyCancel

studio windows in late february

Yesterday a few friends came over to walk around inside my studio in its current construction phase and to feel the possibilities of the space.  It felt great! The windows still have their plastic protective coating on all the panes.  But sunlight still streamed in the front Palladian windows, and we opened the doors for…

    Absolutely stunning! Congrats!ReplyCancel

studio construction update

Just checking in to say there is progress, however slow, on construction of  my new studio. Besides battling the intemperate winter weather here, we’ve been bearing the brunt of delivery delays all along the line. Construction has already taken twice as long as predicted, and we still have a ways to go. My son is…

    How exciting! You must be chomping at the bit to get in there and start creating in your new space. 🙂
    Thanks for sharing the progress!ReplyCancel

    The studio is going to be wonderful! I have family in MD, so perhaps will join you when you open it up to students. I’ve been thinking about sharing my passion of quilting with some of the neighbor kids. Reading about your journey gives me hope to hold on tight to my dreams.ReplyCancel
