Moving out of the Diningroom

Backing up all the art and art supplies this week I move out of the diningroom and into my very own studio! So this is where I have been at it for the last couple of years, very tight and public space. New space is private, larger, more light, no distractions like laundry, phone, neighbors or needy dogs. Also other artists around to get feed back from.
