Sparking and Savoring the Artful Life



I just found this this post on my phone! It was lost in the ether and it’s old, but I was so excited about expanding my studio so let’s see if it will post!

Does it count as a blog post if I am sitting at my fav coffee spot on Park Ave sipping iced coffee with my feet up? I’m in a pool of sun, just like a cat. Mice! That’s cat talk for nice.

We, intern and I, have been putting in long hours lately, totally organizing my studio. I would say reorganizing, but that would mean it had some organization to begin with.

It’s been ridiculously fun, mainly because intern is hysterical, and somehow it turned into a total expansion, which is super exciting. We are making space for the larger, gushy new paintings in my future.
On a food note, we were fuled by frozen yogurt, iced latte’s and Ikea’s delicious balls of meat.

So today, I am putting me feets up. Handyman Kevin and my sweet John are moving the biggest wall back 4 feet, creating our new snazzy and functional storage space and giving me a huge painting wall, with a bonus new and improved music corner.

  1. Enjoy Lynn. I would love to be in the sun in your studio. Thank you for a wonderful experience as you student at Silver Bella!

    • Hi Robin!
      So nice to hear from you! I was thinking that in a way, your studio is a bit like your purse…The bigger it is the more stuff you can put in it. Haa!
      Hopefully that extra space will encourage and support larger ideas and allow for bigger peices!
      Plus now I have a tiny dance floor!
      Wishing you an expansive and Happy New Year!

  5. Lynn I am so glad you are blogging once again. I feel truly blessed to meet you and to take one of your classes at Silver Bella this year, and to buy one of your pieces of art. I hung it proudly in a guest room that I am redecorating this year! Thanks for your inspiration.
