For the last two years I have been painting in a corner of my basement. It's not so bad, I have nice big windows and plenty of space for all my art supplies, but I have always dreamed of having a proper studio. One with good lighting for painting in the evening, which is when I often paint and 'painting walls' where I can hang my work in progress and work on them directly hanging on the wall.
Last weekend I took down my little studio space & cleared away every last bit of painting paraphernalia ready for contractors to start work on building me my dream studio. It felt a little sad clearing away everything knowing it would be a while before I have somewhere to paint again. But now I am excited because the materials were dropped off to make the walls this week, so somehow it all feels more real to me. I will share how it all turns out in a future blog post…so watch this space!
