New Studio

I just moved into a new studio at the Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts. It was a big effort to get everything down there in a couple of days in order to open my studio for first Friday. In Wilmington most galleries are open on the first Friday night of the month so that people can walk from place to place, see a bunch of art, have some wine and cheese and maybe dinner. It is quite fun and now my new studio is on the loop along with around 30 others at the DCCA.

I keep a neat studio, but not quite this neat. It will take a few weeks for it to get messy and there it will stay, so it is probably best that you see it now in its pristine form. I built some shelves for the wall so that I can lean paintings there without a nail. I had similar shelves in my last studio and they really work well for me. If a painting is wet and I am finished working for a while, I flop it on the shelf and grab another. I don't usually keep so much work around, I think I have 17 or 18 paintings but I have been trying to gather a few in order to spread out and start looking for some new galleries.

A few still life objects are making their way into the studio, I should be painting in here soon, probably today if I stop messing with the computer and get to work.
