New Beginnings, New Studio — May 1, 2011

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.
