I arrived in Chicago on June 7, followed a few days later by the movers. I thought I had done such a good job whittling down and moving only the essentials but living in a 2 bedroom apartment is much different than a 3 story townhouse with enough room for all three of my adult children, unlimited storage closets, and a two car garage. It's been a whirlwind to say the least and the good news is I have made my dining room an accessible, working studio.
Walking around in the neighborhood has already got me planning on new small works. And the fact that I actually know where my paints are is an added bonus!
I think the biggest change is what I see when I sit at my desk... fire escapes, angles, and shapes here are quite different from the ocean waves and rolling meadows of Vermont!
Lots of catching up to do on a month of everyone's blogs posts, it feels good to have the time to be back.
