|Late afternoon in front of Art Studio|
As our art expands into new and different directions..what was big enough for two artists with full time art careers begins to take on a life of its own!
It's hard not to be emotionally attached to something you built with your own hands. We salvaged much from a 1910 house, Habitat for Humanity, thrift and salvage stores and with the help of friends and family and much sweat and patience, the 24 x 30 art studio with its 10 ft. high ceilings eventually came into shape!
We started out SO neat! But the reality of loading and unloading vans, equipment, art supplies
paintings and then storage. Oh my. Storage! We have a pull down attic that can accommodate a lot but only those items we are not using regularly.
|We were so neat in the beginning!|
They say photos are worth a thousand words so maybe it's easier to show you what I mean!
But a solution presented itself ...we actually fought it for awhile...thinking just one more thing to fill up but scroll down to see the newest addition to our art compound :-)
|Salvaged cupboards-I wish I had 5 more!|
|No, it's not moonshine-just Steve's secret oil medium curing on the front porch railings!|
