When he left almost 9 months ago ( doesn't seem that long) I didn't know what to do with the space. After a few months I finally decided that I should move some of the stuff out of my "real" studio space which looks out through sliding glass door to the back yard and wet land/green space beyond and expand into this, then empty room. For a time I used it as sort of storage closet. And I used the table with adjustable height legs for squaring up pieces and assembling kits for the classes I teach. In the Summer with the curtains pulled back and the blinds open the room can be too bright and too warm even with air conditioning and the ceiling fan going at top speed.
From the windows today the sky is overcast as seen through one of my three little windows above my design wall area.,
When I was in the painting room (front room-studio annex) I noticed there was a lot of activity in the street. Kids were playing, couples were strolling, a dog walker passed by and thankfully picked up his pets poop, there was a lady jogger,,,,, and then came a bird.
