|Stairway at the Moorehouse at King's Landing- I love that cream! Maybe I'll paint our hall that color.|
We're in the process of moving right now. I'm not set up yet for transferring photos, so I'll share some photos from our last visit to (my other home), King's Landing.
I can't wait to show you the new house. Did you see the movie "Pollock" about artist Jackson Pollock? His first New York apartment reminded me of ours. Tiny like that. Our last place was very small- about 450 square feet. Even though the bathtub wasn't in our kitchen like shown in the film, the bathroom was still strange, being only 3 feet wide. The new house is much bigger.
We're still renting- well-house sitting/renting so it's a great deal. If I hadn't decided to become an artist, Jason and I would have bought our first home a long time ago. Using my savings at that time to get started in my art career was what most people would consider insane and as a former finance manager, I knew better but of course, I'd do it all again if I had to. I will say, however, it's not something I'd recommend ;) and I'm sure there are easier ways of going about it for others. Former banker turned artist business consultant Aletta DeWal suggests keeping your day job until your art business can support you. That's an excellent plan and the one I'd recommend if you're thinking of starting an art career. Having heath issues, that much work would have been too much for me to juggle.

The big move was on the 18 of September. My new studio is all in order and I've already had two special studio guests over for stimulating art discussion. Jason and I have had friends over for a moving day beer, and board game night with snacks. The house has been empty for awhile and it feels good to bring it to life. I'm already pouring through the Vesey's seed catalog planning and plotting for next spring.
