A New Studio Space
Friends, Paddiwhack Gallery has moved and I moved with the gallery. My new space is located at 1512 NW 13th Street, Gainesville, FL 32601 (Next to Lloyd Clark Sports )
I hope you will come by and visit to see my paintings and enjoy the new location. I'll make you a fresh cup of coffee. Let's spend some time together soon.
Well, this year is starting and humming along quickly. January was a blur! I am working on multiple projects again this year, including my third year of the Artist in Residence Project, a Champion and Heritage Trees Project, a series of ocean waves paintings, a series of cake paintings, my tree and rural lands paintings and baking homemade bread and cakes in my spare time to sell to friends. I'll have four one week residencies around Florida from now through April. I never have time to be bored.
Notes From My Studios
I am fortunate to have two studios. My painting studio is located near Lacrosse Florida. It is an old concrete block building behind my old mobile home. I have lived there for a good long time, since the 70's on and off with short stints in other cities around the south. I came back home in the 80's and have lived here since. It is my parents home, both now gone over the rainbow bridge, and happily together again. I share the old place with my sister and my dog Henry. The current studio was once my daddy's workshop. It makes me happy to be there and think of him. It has no frills. Concrete block floors, a supply room, a frame closet and utility room. It is perfect as a painting studio and I can do large format paintings there in oils. it is also the studio I use to do my furniture paintings.
My second studio is a cozy space inside Paddiwhack Gallery at 1512 NW 13th Street in Gainesville, FL (Next to Lloyd Clark Sports). It is smaller but better looking and it holds my framed work. I do acrylic and oil paintings at this studio. I hope you will visit soon. I'm there Wednesday - Saturday unless I am off on a painting residency.
I'll be posting musings from these studios from time to time.
