My posts have been a little slow coming, in part because I am finding being a nomadic artist a little challenging. Usually I work from my home studio where everything has it’s place and has for many years. I get myself in trouble when I do a major clean and organize. Then I wonder where stuff is. A day after arriving in Cypress for my Guest Artist in Residency, I set up the Artist Cabin that is to be my studio / gallery for the next few weeks. It took me a full day to unpack and hang the artwork. There is a desk in one corner where I am writing from. I also paint and prepare for classes in this corner. This is a one room cabin, much like my grandfather’s homestead. I try to keep organized by having my own personal art materials under one table on one side of the room and all the supplies for classes I am teaching under a table on the other side.
