So I began a slow transition into my studio space this week and for the first time opened my door during public hours. It would be really fun to say that my week was wildly productive,my walls are full of fresh work,and people flooded through my door but that is not what happened. The real story of week one was all about the wonderful artists that I have had the pleasure to meet. Everyone has been wonderfully accomodating,pleasant, and extremely talented. To be honest it has all been challenging but refreshing. Had it not been for the kindness of my neighbors this week could have been much more difficult for me. My surroundings are more accessible because of these folks and I feel more at home as a result. As always working dilligently in the background is Nicole Jolley. Truly, this effort for a family with three little ones is not for the feint at heart. Nicole as always is an amazing support,encouragement,and a pure force of nature when it comes to getting this tribe up and moving. There is much to be done and I am very much looking forward to the road ahead.
