Here it is, the place where it all happens–my studio. The above photo is facing out towards the street–the front door is on the right, the kitchen is to the left, and the bedroom is at the top left. The frame in the top photo was left here and I love it. I will have to wait and see which direction I end up going but I might just have to take a day and paint that thing.
These photos were taken about 24 hours ago and the space is already looking much more worked in. Today one of my fellow residents and I set up a still life and painted for the morning and early afternoon. It was wonderful to have another person to paint with. I’m not thrilled with my painting but the point is to be doing it.
Yesterday I spent the day getting organized and doing a couple of sketches. I am doing a course called the Artist’s Way while I am here so I did the reading for week one. The Artist’s Way is a 12 week program to invigorate creativity. It can be spiritual if you want it to be but it is very flexible. I am really enjoying it so far and it has been highly recommended by friends and artists.

To conclude I would like to leave China for a moment and say Happy 10 Month Anniversary to my very wonderful husband. Being away from him has been pretty hard, I can’t wait for him to arrive in two weeks! Cheers to you, Handsome! I love you!
