Things Change

leave a comment »

I came across some photos of an exhibition of my work back in California and remembered how little space (it was a shared space) I had to Paint. sylvia.png Every closet I have where I live now is larger then the studio space I once had. I recall setting up a still life on the windowsill, I was one of the lucky ones, I had a window. I would look forward to going to my space at night, hoping to catch a little of the sun. Once the sun went down, I would turn on the fluorescents, play some music and be happy. A lot has changed since those days, I have my own studio, I paint almost everyday, listen to music and be happy.capanda.png

This is one of the old paintings. My daughter was off to college and I would raid her room and find toys that could fit on the windowsill or the small cabinet that was to the right my easel and paint them.

shemershow1 First thank to all of you who came to the opening that I didn’t get the opportunity to thank you personally.

There were lots of people, tons of handshakes, and paintings being sold. A Recipe for a great time. shemershow2
