The painters had completed their work: The ceiling was now a bright white and the floor, a polished clean slab of cement. What remained to do was the installation of a skylight and new windows, a storage area, and a set of shelves over the workbench to hold canvases, both completed canvases and those waiting to be painted. But the carpenters and contractor didn't show. They were tied up on another, much larger project. Sadly, we had to leave the unfinished studio "as is," as we tucked the house in for the winter and headed south for full time life and work in the city.
But there will be spring. My contractor promises that all will be done well before we head north, from the city to Pine Plains, in April. I trust the work will get done and then I can become completely engaged in setting up the new studio. Reawakenings are right for the spring.
Here is a shot of the studio as it waits for me:
