New Studio Space!

By April 2, 2014 July 18th, 2016 Painting, Techniques and Materials

In January I moved my studio down the hall into a gorgeous new space. I am still at Waltham Mills Artists Association and still subletting from another artist, but this time I have use of the full space, rather than sharing the working area with another artist.

Not only does this mean I can work next to the North-facing window (in the other studio I had the interior half of the studio), but the proximity of the western windows (off the left side of the photo below) and the painted floor mean this space has significantly more natural light than the old studio. It also feels much larger because of the length and the large amount of wall space, though the square footage is comparable to what I had before.

I am settled in and working there now, loving it. This is the view out the north-facing window (thankfully the snow has now gone!):
