The North side is painted. The sign is up! The facia board is installed. This 76 degree day is amazing spring fling day.
It’s a great day to be outside painting the exterior of my studio! The North side got the works today. Brush and roll action is how the paint is being applied. Two tones of gray will cover the tan primmed exterior. Facia, gutters, and rain barrels will be installed later. Behold the fabulously beautiful pink front door!
12 truckloads and counting That’s a lot of moving!
Unpacking has begun I am finding some of my favorite specials and treasures. Old friends are here to play! Loyal and supportive. I love these friends. Blue. Yellow. Graphite. India ink. Tried and true varnishes and fixit tapes of all colors.
Spring is upon us and so is the mud. Stay tuned for more excellent news on the solar panels and mechanical room installation.
Take a moment to look at the sunshine and shadows. The details reveal a delicate space. The light helps my eyes see the nuances. Water is fleeting in nature. When it’s cold outside there is snow. A slight shift in light intensity or elevation is enough for snow to become rain. Living at 6,800 feet elevation is the best opportunity for viewing weather patterns and the behaviors of water. Amazing things happen when I change perspective.
It’s been amazing to see how many boxes are here. 8 truck loads so far. Maybe only 3 more. How did that happen? I am so excited to move the flat files next. In order to maintain a fluid interchangeable space the entire studio setup will be on wheels.
It’s time to move in. It’s been so much fun to build from ground up. Next phase is even more exciting and fun. Move and unpack. Where to put the tables? The driveway is a muddy mud pit. Which makes for a great time with the slip and slide! Road base and road grating is coming up as soon as the ocean of mud dries out. It’s pack and load time....
Let’s take a break and go on a walk. Get outside in Nature. I am excited to learn we are going to get a rain storm in a few days. Spring is only 2 weeks away. Yet the signs of spring are happening already if one looks closely. The pink flush in the plant world has begun. Spring is on its way!
There is always something interesting, amusing, educational, or beautiful to ponder and explore.
