I have worked in my home for my entire artistic career. I am now at an interesting juncture with my work, and am
ready to take it to a new level of exploration. I have been pondering getting a studio space for the past few months, and am opening myself up to this new realm. I know that it may not seem like a big deal to others, but for me it really is.
I have been thinking quite a bit about what having my own space might mean to me, and what I desire. I will admit I really love my solitude. I love to listen to what I want, when I want. I love to create what I want, when I want & love to have my own space.
I dream of large windows with beautiful natural light, high vaulted ceilings, a wonderful view & a fabulous outdoor patio where I can meditate, practice yoga or read for inspiration. A studio where I can create large scale artwork, say 10ft x 10ft paintings. How wonderful would that be? This is my intention, my manifestation & my dream.
With that said, I have been considering getting a studio in the middle of nowhere…maybe a renovated warehouse etc…. Being in my own space with no one around….sounds very blissful to me.
Then there is the flip side of the coin. I also have a desire to be around other creative beings. On the road, I do love the vibe of having my artist friends around to chat about the ups and downs of being an artist. We lean on each other in good and bad, & the comradery is wonderful. I wonder if I would like an artist loft style space, with other artists sharing ideas, thoughts and creations. Where would a space like this lead me?
So… where do I go from here? Well, I have begun my search, and I believe that the Universe will bring me what I desire. I am learning to give up the control of this situation & know that it will all work out in the end. I am very excited for this new path in front of me, and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
As I tell my two kiddos every day before they go to school… “Expect Great Things”… words that I myself could live by.
