"What art offers is a space - a certain breathing room for the spirit" -John Updike
I have found such a place! Maybe. Greenleaf Art Center offers a small studio space with free parking (HUGE HERE!), A/C, heat, participation in group shows. Sounds like a great deal but what a commitment! I keep thinking back to my days living in Dallas where our second bedroom was used for storage and randomness... But then I think about it and I feel that if I had a studio to call my own, I would really be able to dive into my work without the distraction of Young and the Restless or reruns of the Fresh Prince at 2:00 in the afternoon. The only problem is ventilation - do I get a huge fan? Or is it enough to have a/c and a mask? Decisions, decisions. The biggest of them all is fitting a studio space into our expanding family budget. Any ideas out there, I would love to hear them!
