My new cozy, warm and wonderful studio space

I moved into the new studio this weekend and I love it. I was so nervous that it would be too small and that nothing would fit, but I like it better than the old one. (Studio is in the Western Avenue Studio building in Lowell.)

I took some photos of my new spot. The last two are photos taken to the left and right of my door and gives you an idea of how many studios are on the floor. There are 4 floors of studios - a couple hundred artists from all areas of art - painters, fabric artists, graphic designers, photographers, sculptors, potters, jewelry designers and more. So if you are around Boston/Lowell it is worth the trip. A great way to spend a Saturday (first Saturday of each month is open studios.) I am going to finally get up the courage to open for the September Open Studio weekend - woo hoo.

Strangely enough I like this view better than my old one, although the old one looked over the canal. I couldn't really see the canal unless I stood up and looked down. This view has distance, and spires, and the whole urban thing going and I can sit in a chair, relax and look out.

And here's the hall:
