A "not so long ago" move to a larger house that came complete with a spare garage is now being used as an all-purpose painting studio. This space gives me the freedom I need to create the larger pieces of art I have always wanted to. I can now get messy on a much bigger scale without getting in anyones hair (literally) and the bonus being I can shut a door and not have to clean up after myself right away.
Painting larger than "book size" started out as an experiment but quickly turned into something I could really wrap my senses around. Friends and family have been extremely encouraging in this area and have provided me with challenges I wouldn't otherwise have considered. I can now honestly say that this has been one of my most enjoyable endeavors and is proving to be a very worthwhile extension to my work.
