For the last year or so, I've been casting around for a studio space solution that gets me out of my house. I have a lovely home studio that has served my purposes well, but there are some serious drawbacks.
I would like to find a place where I have my own private studio within a context of many studio spaces. I love being surrounded by other artists and the isolation of my home studio is sometimes lonely. I would also like to have a separate work address - having studio visits in my home can be somewhat awkward: "Don't mind the toys strewn all over the hallway - Whoops, are you okay? That was just a lego." The other thing I'd like to have in a studio is a space that allows me to hang and have open studio events. In my current situation, that's not possible.
I still haven't found the right place, but I have a few leads. Cross your fingers for me that something wonderful becomes available this summer. I'm ready to take my work to the next level and having a studio space, reserved just for the purpose of painting and showing my work, would be a huge step in the right direction.
Also, here two of three pieces I was commissioned to make for a local pediatric therapy clinic! The third piece will be completed sometime in the coming week or two! As always, you can see my work at www.sarahgreenman.com
