Now the work begins... I have done started in on a commissioned piece while still finding my materials and figuring out where to put everything to try to organize this iteration of the studio more effectively. The space is naturally larger and light is very good l, a beautiful place to work. Now to find that old 'habit of art', always thinking about it, but now to get into the habit of carrying out the ideas, and not just carrying them around.
How has the new space changed things so far?
I can actually extend my easel so I can stand as I work, the daylight spectrum helps with colour mixing, practical, concrete things. Psychologically the commitment is heavier, this space represents an endorsement of value and a serious challenge to meet. Time is the last element and that will be more available soon as well.
