Whats Going On At The Studio?

Well, there’s been a lot going on at the studio in the last month or so. Much preparation for the student exhibition – details in the flyer above.

I have spent time clearing out my second studio and getting it ready for the Student Exhibition, Spring Fever, which is happening on the weekend of November 11th and 12th. This proved to be rather a large task because before I could empty the studio out, I had to empty out and rearrange the storeroom, where all the paintings were going to go. I should have taken a before and after photo but of course, I forgot. Well, I do have an afterwards photo and it will have to do.

The Store Room

It is amazing how much you can fit into a small space when you organise it properly.  I had to take everything out to make room for the new things going in there.

Then it was a case of taking the table away, and all the paintings I’d stored under it and putting them in the storeroom too. All the old paintings had to come off the wall, during the course of which, I managed to put my back out too! Not fun.

Next came all the rearranging of the storage space as the new stuff went into it. Meanwhile, John was busy in the front studio, putting up new tracking for the paintings.

The last task was to rearrange the rest of the studio furniture and clear the last of the clutter out of there.

As well as preparing for the exhibition, I have been working on a new painting, which you can see on the easel above. Then, of course, there are the weekly art classes, daily social media posts, and the bi-monthly magazine to work on. Have you seen my magazine?  I began it this year – here is a link to the previous issue.  If you like it. sign up and it will be delivered to your inbox every second month.

And all of this is part of what makes an artist tick. It’s part of the artlife journey.
