I spent all night (till 1:30am) painting the new studio. That's me on the ladder and yes, that's wine on the shelf below to the left. One must have inspiration! Good thing I didn't fall off that ladder! That's my daughter Natasha (below). It was so good of her to come and help me paint and keep me company. Thanks sweetie!
As you can see the studio is becoming a lovely shade of "bambooish/sagey" green. A "new color" that I mixed myself with some left over paint from Becky (bff) and some other paints I already had. I also mixed in a few little bottles of folkart acrylic colors. I actually wanted the color to be lighter so I kept mixing in white but it didn't seem to make much difference. Finally we just went for it and, well, it's pretty darn green, but I'm really liking it. The room has a good earthy, happy, feeling. I'm starting to feel right at home. It's like my new little creative nest is being born. I can't wait to start moving in. I'm going back today to do paint touch ups. Then I'll clean the floor which is a beautiful hardwood and then start moving in. I want to be all in by the weekend and hang up my art and display my class examples. Next week I'll update my brochure and summer class schedule and make flyers to hand out at the "Mushroom Mardi Gras" festival here in Morgan Hill (May 26 & 27). If you're in the area please stop by and say hi!
