I'm leaving my mill studio of 9 years and making the final move of studio belongings today.
It has been a good run. I loved having my own space. I would have regretted never having done this.
But my word for this year is transition. We are building a new home and I will have a studio in it- smaller, for sure than having 2 large studios, but it mirrors my life. I'm wanting to spend time making art, not to sell, but from my heart. And time to smell the flowers- physical and mental.
So moving on, growth, awareness of my changing needs keeps me going. Art keeps me going. Family keeps me going. This change/move is a lot of work but my eye is still keened for beauty.
This old iron wheel cover popped when I removed the things around it. I fastened it to some random nails and wow! I love the way it looks! I will leave for the next occupant. Perhaps they may enjoy it too.
