Just like everything else, this is a lot of work -- and my stay at the Torpedo Factory is only one month long. I'm sure it will fly by. I hope all of you come to visit. There is so much to see there -- for me and you. One of my goals is to explore on my off (not already scheduled) hours and review some of my favorites here. There are 82 studios here!
|Don't miss what's back in the workspace area... some favorites|
The floors are concrete. Hard. I'll also have to work on that.
My official hours there on Thursday are from 2-9pm. Tomorrow I'll be in and out in the afternoon.
And there are five paintings and drawings in the studio right now -- of sights in London -- in honor of the Olympic games. They include "London Times," "Parliament," "Tower of London," "Buckingham Palace Fountain," and "Duck Pond at St. James Park." Come take a look.
