progress


My Mother has always told me that progress makes perfect.
Progress is being made on my studio.
The workers have had a relentless winter and had to work around snow and freezing temperatures.
Weekly meetings and daily tasks bring us closer to seeing things take shape.
It is all very exciting and a bit scary.

My new studio space will give me room to paint larger works and an area to devote to my love of design and art.
Pardon the mess, but my father has always told me, "Messes mean progress."
I love knowing that all this will be for the betterment of my future work.
I look forward to my work taking on new meaning, having a dedicated space.
Thank-you to each of you for your encouragement, motivation and support.

It looks like it is going to be a wonderful space for you to create! Progress is good, and soon the word will be completion

I can't wait to see the finished studio! All the windows to let the golden morning sun in and to see the beautiful sunsets in the evening. Will you studio hold it's own door too?

Hmmm... I think your walks need a little something before the dry wall goes up. I just had an idea... xo

art2cee2-
Completion seems so far away, so I pray for patience and strength and sunny blue skies for the workers too.

Nest wishes for a space of calm and serenity where inspiration finds you at every turn ~

I have always had to work in whatever space was available at any given moment, for large works or otherwise ~ I am a nomad.

Patricia- Beautiful! It looks like you are getting ready for a big concrete pour, no?

The blank spaces to be filled with windows look so promising. This will be a dream space for you to grow your dreams. I am so happy for you. Larger works? That's so exciting! Yea!

p.s. my smaller construction project looks like it will start to move forward - April! The contractor just asked to move the ordered windows to the site.
