Betty - It's wonderful that you are going to have a "school free"
studio space at home.
Frani turned one bedroom into a sewing room and I'm using another as
a studio. But my
space is over flowing with the stuff I stack here and there. Of
course there is just the two
of us and Blossom (our dog). If you are going to do everything you
listed you had best
be organized. I'm not - I still cut mats on the island in the
kitchen, put paintings into frames
on our bed, stack paintings between exhibits in the library, etc. My
wish is to add a room
on to the house for a real studio but this is not the time to take on
debt. Keep us informed
as your space is finished.
