Response to: Carol Marine's Painting a Day: Yellow Splash
"...Someone else asked when my studio will be done. I honestly don't know, but we hope..."
In response to studios: I often tell myself that when I finally have my "dream" studio, I will be sleight of vision and hand, and possibly have only weeks left to live.
After a lifetime of crawling on floors, hiding in attics, freezing in garages, stumbling around in backrooms, fighting dust balls, tumble weeds, bad light, and birds, insects, mice and snakes...
...I have to tell others that a studio is a dream notion I may never realize in my lifetime, and as it is to most of us... it is always in "the works."
The last real studio I ever worked in was at Trinity U, in the early 70's... Yikes!
Life has taken many turns and a studio has never been a "family priority.." for my bunch. Why do I say this? Almost every artist I have pleasure to talk with says "my studio is almost finished..."
Thanks for sharing that studio note there, CM. I sense, and appreciate, the irony of the statement.
