Last Images of the Old Studio

This afternoon I was cleaning up
in our old apartment
and thought I would share with you
the last items remaining

Soon I will be fully established in a new space
however seeing these last bits reminds me
how happy I was creating art here before
the construction crew decided to setup shop
outside my window...

In accecptence with everything
that has changed during this season
it is bittersweet to be starting anew.

I have faith that the new year will bring
new opportunities and happy experiences

And I wish the same for you during
this holiday season.

A Quick Hello and a New Silverpoint

Hello Friends ~

I am stopping by for a quick visit before diving back into unpacking boxes, organizing bookshelves and closets. The movers moved all our possessions last week Wednesday and since then my number one goal was to get our kitchen in working order, as I am just about tired of having pizza for lunch and dinner.

The day before the movers arrived I took time off from packing to attend the make-up class for Robert Liberace’s drawing class. It was the best 4+ hours I spent all last week, drawing always takes my mind off of pressing tasks… This silverpoint was completed during the class. After the class I dropped by the house to air out and do some final cleaning. Moving during this time of year has been limiting all my yuletide cheer. Hopefully this will be the last week where most of my time is dedicated to unpacking…

How have you been? Are you prepared for the holidays? I am surely not – so far this year no cards, cookies or gifts have been prepared to be shipped off to friends and family. Now I need to run, but before I go here are some lovely images of the snow that fell this weekend.

Enjoy your day, Liz
