My studio is finished and the move-in has begun. Soon the equipment will come out of storage and last, the paintings will come in. Two years wandering and finally a home.
This experience has been a cautionary tale about the challenges to an artist’s life, the New York City real estate frenzy, the purge of the creatives as the city sanitizes its neighborhood and scrubs them clean of talent that isn’t short-term profitable, and most important above all else, the kindness of friends.
I have experienced graciousness from so many throughout this period. I will always remember these and the loving support offered.
