We are undergoing a major home renovation. My studio is becoming the kitchen and the kitchen is becoming my studio. The light was wrong for these two spaces: the studio got lots of southern light and was often too bright, while the kitchen had the steady - but darker seeming - northern light. The project is stretching out over at least five months. While the work is being done I am working out of a third floor bedroom that's tiny with less-than-ideal lighting; it also gets wicked hot on summer days. In the long run, I will get an amazing studio out of this renovation so I'm not grumbling too much. But my productivity has waned a bit.
It's likely that your summer is relaxing, but busy, but should you find yourself with time to visit a gallery or two, there are several spots where I have work this summer. I just dropped this painting off last week at Dowling Walsh Gallery in Rockland, Maine.
