Happy New Year!!!
I haven't painted much but I have been creative.
I've spent the better part of the last six months building a studio in the top of our home.
This is what it looked like a little while ago...
And here it is now!!
I've done most of the work myself and hired pros only when I needed them (plumbing and wiring etc).
I now have space aprox 800 square feet where I can paint and hold my classes, including a seperate room for creating digital images for the illustration business. I have my own bathroom with a shower and a kitchen area to make coffee and clean my brushes.
When the snow blows , I can look out the windows watching it cling to big oak limbs while working in the comfort of the studio. In the summer I plan to build a nice deck outside and I can take my coffee out there for a break when I need to.
There are still a lot of finishing details to do but those will happen as I spend more time up here.
