|Goodbye, Saxonville Studios|
The end of era; leaving my former studio of 15 years
I have officially moved into my new studio at Fountain Street Studios in Framingham, Massachusetts. It's an exciting time for me, new beginnings, more privacy, and a larger artist community. And it's all my space. You can see how it looked before I paint it here.
I still have a lot to do. Unpack, setup and get back to work. The whole ordeal has been a bit daunting, but thanks to Budget truck rental, my nephew Derek, his girlfriend Megan, and my wonderful husband Greg—I have made the move. It's a strange feeling, and I wonder if my subconscious will drive to the wrong studio one of these days...
Yesterday I began the process of evaluating the space and deciding how to set it up. I'll need a good storage area; place to prep and wrap pieces. There is a larger amount of wall space to hang my work in progress.
|Walls painted and ready to bring it on in!|

|So many things to sort and set up|
|More sorting and Louie investigates|
Those of you who know me, know that my dogs are my most valued studio assistants. Louie was adopted from a dump in Alabama 4.5 years ago, and he's still not sure about the new space. So he had to sniff every corner. He wasn't so sure about this place....
|Ella is happy her bed is here|
Almost 2 years old, the trip on the new and clunky freight elevator was a tough journey.
Ella was happy to find her bed, and snooze.
Wait! It's all about the tennis ball. Louie is ok now with the new space.
|First chore: decide where to store panels/new and completed|
|So I moved them here; future site of a storage rack|
Goodnight all, more to come soon.
