On the Art of Space and Light


There is nothing like sitting in the studio and getting a little lost in the work. I love when the colors on a canvas start to breathe life into not only my creativity, but into the environment of the workspace. The glow adds a sense of energy and excitement.

I also love having the space to wait for paint to dry! In other words I have another work station. While one piece is resting another is being whittled into something new. I can try new things and scatter dust all over. There isn’t a “no” to be found.

Even when my hand starts cramping and the buzzing sound begins to take over I move on to the laptop where the words can vivaciously spill out in a new form and with a new voice.

This can happen all in a day and it does. I must say, a newly acquired abundance of space and light goes a long way!
