Here We Are Again

I have been avoiding this. Writing in my blog. It has been hard to dismantle something I wasn't ready to let go of and I didn't know what to say about it.

This morning I watched a building burn to the ground. It stood across the highway from our house. It was an old saloon style building that I loved looking at. This morning I woke to sirens and smoke. The smoke is still rising from the ground. The building is completely gone. I am reminded that everything is temporary. And it could be worse.

So... I focus on the future.

I have set up my studio again here in my house. I have started working a bit. I'm still not sure what to focus on, but getting my feet wet, testing the waters, looking for inspiration.

For a couple days my studio was floor to ceiling boxes and chaos from bringing all my "junk" back from the gallery. Now it is more organized (though bursting at the seams!) than it has ever been.

I think it's good to bring my work home now. I'm comfortable here. It doesn't feel like work, creating feels like play when I do it at home. Ok... The Artsiehorse Studio isn't closed, just relocated.


  1. Forced to quit something is hard and the Artsiehorse Studio was a special place, but now you don't have to wear pants when you work and that's a good thing.

  2. There IS always a bright side. :)

  3. I'm sure you'll have another place again!!! :) The right place will pop up...hopefully sooner than later.

  4. What a great space! Good to see you last night *^_^*

  5. "Everything is temporary" very true. I also believe very much in "sometimes you win and sometimes you learn." Your gallery will always be with you, and the experience part of your life.
