Forgive me for not posting yesterday. The internet has been really spotty hear, so getting work done online is rather slow. Thursday was my first full day to work in the studio. The studio space they have given me is pretty nice. I would estimate it is 24 feet by 40 feet, with large South-facing windows and double doors on the opposite end so I can leave it open to the breeze when it is nice. There is plenty of wall space, and more importantly, lots of tables so I can spread out as much as I want.
Being here has immediately made me more relaxed and less anxious about getting everything finished for the upcoming Chatfield show. It's something about the dedicated work space, solitude and endless free time that has helped me think through my ideas, and get a better grasp of what I want to present. So far I've just been doing sketches and doing a few composition exercises. I hope to start actually creating the paintings and prints by the middle of next week.
Let me know what you would like to know about the Anderson Center. I'm guessing that days will start to feel the same once I get into the habit of working every day, so let me know what would make this more interesting.
Also, let me know if you know anybody who owns a drill press. I'll need one later in the month to finish a piece. I feel like I'm playing Poke'mon go, except with power tools.
