I just finished two large
(for me and my work space they are large)
24" x 30"
This size canvas takes up almost the entire dining room table...and I have
to set up card tables for paints, brushes..etc.
I'm very pleased that I was able to accomplish this..and let me tell you
it wasn't easy.
With my limited space, I can only work on one painting at a time...
then I have to find someplace safe to put it
until I can work on it again.
I only have one closet...and that one is a walk through clothes closet that I
share with my son...so no room there.
Mostly...paintings are stored all over my bedroom...and when I get
to the point that I would have a problem walking there...I don't paint anymore
until I sell some of the older works.
You can see that I do all of my printing and painting in my dining room
and every other Sunday we have family day...
so things have to get put up
so they we can use it to eat a family meal at the table.
I'm not complaining...
when I moved to my last house...it was because we were living
in a second floor apartment and with my
husband's failing health, he couldn't manage the stairs anymore.
that house was quite a bit pricier than this one...
but painting sales were really good at that time
and so it was no big deal.
Since things have gotten a bit 'tight' for everyone...
I had to make a choice to downsize too!
It's actually a cute little place...
and I am 'making it work'.
Of course, I do have to have sales a little more
often than I used to...in the hopes of moving
a few older paintings so that I have
room for new ones.
