studio space

i found a studio space to paint in. it isn't big at'all, 7.5'x12'? something like that, but it's a space all to myself! over the weekend, we went to move my very few things into it, only to find out i couldn't lock my space cuz the office gave me the key to the Lovejoy spaces. altho i did manage to find a work table in the refurbished area of ikea. nice working height with brushed aluminum surface and steel legs that r very sturdy. all i need to do today is go and load up the table n i can start working in ther!

kirk has been really sweet n loaned me his drafting stool and his rugs from storage.
my goal this yr is to make at least 5 larger pcs of work. tho the 1st project i hv to finish is our invites. it will b done in my studio! yipee!

the amazing part is that the rent is so amazing, 230/month including utilities. and internet wifi is preset ther so 1 can purchase it by month/week/day or hr or not at all. and it's easy access for me from home via the street car or my bike.

now i just need to get all else settled n make it cozy.

hello puffy!


this is the puppy-Puffy i've become so attached to. he's adorable n still learning. loves apples n strawberries or any type of fruit, nuts, foods, etc. if it's edible, it's his. but we'r being careful not to feed him human stuff (human cooked n processed) anyway, so isn't he adorable? yah a bit gay in my pink scarf, but it matches his coloring. and i'm sure he is "dude' enough to not mind pink at all! i will miss him tons when i leave for pdx on friday.... so sad to b leaving tw, suddenly my days r getting too short. ther's not enough time to do all the stuff i still hv to do. i will def miss my brother, vic and chris n her kids. the next time i am here in twn, ther will only b vic to hang out with. chris is moving to shanghai soon. tho i want to b excited for them, it's tough to b when i kno i will miss them even more. n tho shanghai isn't that far, i can't split my visits btwn her n vic in the same locale anymore.

ths rain is def not helping with my moods.
