The most difficult part of the move is deciding what to take over and what to leave at home in my basement studio. I don't want the "mayhem" to be viewed by the public, so I am leaving many of my supplies at home, but I do plan on doing almost all of my work in the new studio. It is giving me a headache, luckily my daughter has stepped in to give me a much needed hand. She is good at keeping me focused as I "lolly-gag" through boxes and drawers thinking about what I can do with this and that...I am easily distracted. She just laughs and says she is used to it. Who is the mother here anyways???
I plan to be up and running in January, and will be open thursday to saturday 10-4 to start. I will be there much more, but those are my "written in stone" days to start. If anyone would like to come by during other times, just give my cel phone a call, 250-703-1150, and I will probably be able to let you know if I am able to be there or not. I am still working out of the shared studio at The Old School House Gallery in Qualicum Beach on Wednesdays for the time being. I thought staying there would be a great way to advertise my studio.
I have taken some time off of painting, after a wonderful 4 day retreat on Cortes Island with a good friend. I love those small islands and I definitely want to go back to this particular place. I may not be painting, but I have been thinking alot about what I am going to do when I pick up my brush once again. I can hardly wait to get started. I am feeling rather refreshed!
So, I will keep you posted as to when my official opening is. Sometime in January I think.
Have a Merry Xmas and a wonderful New Year!
