About Moving Day

In point of fact, it will probably be more like moving weekend or week. The contents of my before-studio, now to be reassembled into my after-studio, is housed in two storage units, one large capacity, one medium sized.

The new studio has been designed to accommodate my operation which requires keeping large boards on hand and easily accessible to use as supports for the paper-on-canvas works. There are shelves for the painted papers that I make to use for collage and there are racks for finished  works. All neat and tidy and set up so that little thought need be given to finding the materials and setting up the scene in which to pursue the vision. In short, a space that cooperates with and supports the process. Who could ask for anything more?

The rain is steady and heavy and predicted to be of old testament duration.Well, maybe not forty nights, but probably close considering what is already behind us. But no matter, the move will happen, the space will become a studio and I will resume my bless├ęd work.

That’s all she wrote for now. Tune in next week for a progress report with photos.

The image above is another of the little houses, as yet untitled, being readied for the upcoming North Coast Open Studios event in June.

  1.'re almost there! Good luck! How exciting and overwhelming all at once.

    The thought of moving artwork and supplies in this weather is more than a little daunting. (I swear the Times-Standard has been concocting weather symbols I'd never seen prior to this week--"heavy" rain with what looks to be a black mass pouring from the cloud?) Fortunately, it is not supposed to continue with quite such biblical volume during the rest of the week, as far as I know. I can't wait to see the new space all unpacked!
