Location, location, location

There is happy news to report!  I now have studio space in downtown Lexington!  

Here are some before shots:

Truth in advertising time - It's not as big as it looks in the photos due to the super wide angle lens I was using to get the whole room in the shot.  This will be an interesting experiment on just how creatively organized I can be.  The ideas are already pouring in and I'm sure as I start working in the space, other ideas will present themselves.

I knew the first thing I wanted to do was paint those walls but I love the creaky argyle floor!  

My parental units graciously came to help with the installation of my solo show at the MS Rezny Gallery and then stayed to begin the process of sprucing up the studio space.   
My Dad thinking dark thoughts about the light fixture I bought...
Luckily my father is a patient man.  The new light fixture I got to replace the chandelier fought it's installation every step of the way.  I was so glad that two people could climb my ladder at once because it took at least 3 hands to get this crazy thing up on the ceiling. 

So here's what the new studio space looks like so far.  I have a ton more supplies to bring up.  This is probably the neatest it will ever be!  I can't wait to get in there and start making a mess.
