I am so thankful for all that has happened to me this past year, the biggest of which is renting my very own studio. (Its mine! All MINE!!) I can leave messes, crank the music, spray paint inside and even drive my car in it. With this space come a ton of ideas that weren't possible before. I hope to offer classes in the new year, maybe teach some faux stuff or even drawing classes. I may offer a class on perspective drawing too. Is there something painted related that you would like to learn from me?
I also think I may offer open studio nights where other artists can come and work on things where they would need extra space. And perhaps even a gallery of new art, or a shop sale of repurposed items. Who knows?! Maybe I need to sit down and plan all this out.
My ideas are running over the brim for 2013. I also want dedicate some time to focus on creating art for arts sake. What moves me. I am so happy to be in the position I am and couldn't have arrived here without the support of my family, friends, peers, mentors, and clients.
ps...I may be going to France in March to take a class with two masters of decorative painting. stay tuned!
