New building, new opportunities

Since starting back at school in January, I have been finding the going pretty tough, largely due to the fact that my current 'art room' is a stinking hot demountable circa 1980s with no running water, sinks, precious little storeage and nothing much at all to endear itself. It has been particularly tough during the hot weather and having to lug stuff around including jerry-cans of water.

If this situation was going to be permanent or even long term, I am sure I would have quit by now. The last couple of weeks I have been wondering how I could hang on - I've been coming home utterly exhausted which means, of course, that along with extra hours, there is little time or energy for creativity.

But on Friday, I got a look at the light at the end of my tunnel - a great new art facility which should be ready to move into in the next couple of weeks. Hallelujah, I'm saved! The photos below are not good quality, but they will give you an idea of what I am getting excited about.

Main art room looking to the back - sinks under the window.

This is a verandah/courtyard space which will house the kiln and work with ceramics and hard materials etc.
Storeage Galore: Woo Hoo!

Also, I have just been invited to exhibit in New York, New York in June. If I can make it there, I can make it anywhere, right? More news on that as it comes to hand.
