Introducing......Chroma Studios!

Here are some photos of the new space.

Aaron's Studio
My husband and I both have our studios here, plus there are 7 other studios.

One space left!

Currently there are 6 other artists with one empty studio. 1 mixed media artist, 2 photographers, 4 painters and 1 musician. I have someone coming to see the last space tomorrow. I will get links up to all the other artist websites soon.

Multipurpose room

We are planning our grand opening show for the first week in May. Not sure about the exact date yet. I will keep you updated on that. We also have a conference room/classroom/gallery space. Let's just call it our multipurpose room.

One of my favorite spaces is the patio out on the roof! We sit out there on sunny days and eat our lunch.

Finally, back online!

Moved into the new studio space and after several days and several people trying to figure it out, we have our internet up and working now! I have lots to blog about but have to go out of town tomorrow and have to finish one of my needlepoint designs before I go, soooo I will get back to blogging when I get back. I will also have photos to share of the new studios!

New work!

Update: OK, so I couldn't get the video to work, so above is a photo of my latest piece. It's not a great photo, as it's difficult to get a good shot of such a large painting! This one is 48 inches square. I THINK it's done!
Still in progress, I cannot wait to move into the new studio space so I can finish it up! I just don't have the room at home! We are counting down the days until move in, Thursday is the day! We now only have one, possibly two, spaces available! We rented three on Friday and the one that is left could be split into two spaces. I'm having a difficult time getting anything done at the house, so it will be great to get in there!

Also, in preparation for my move, I'm cleaning out my stash of stuff! I have several embroidered, beaded butterfly and dragonfly brooches as well as some vintage Mucha and Vogue posters listed in my Etsy shop for incredible prices. Check them out!

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Wow! Time has flown since my last post! I have been super busy with everything going on, but it's all good stuff, so I'm happy. We are still showing the new studio space to prospective renters. We were down to only 2 spaces left but unfortunately, a couple people had to back out on us so now there are 4 spaces available again. If you are interested you'd better jump on it soon though, we are making the rounds at First Friday this week so I don't expect there to be any spaces available after the weekend!

Lots of other exciting things happening as well! My husband will be appearing on television tonight on two different shows. They are both local cable access channel shows so unfortunately you have to be local to catch them. However, he does get a dvd of his appearance so I know he will be posting some video on his blog and youtube as soon as he can.

Also, it looks like a may have a position as curator for a local arts and entertainment venue. I don't want to mention any names until I know for sure. I should be meeting with the current curators soon. I will keep you posted.

I am close to finishing the second of two large canvases I've been working on over the past few weeks. They are reserved for a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe. Again, I don't want to mention any names until I know for sure. I have taken some video of the first one and I'm waiting for my camera batteries to charge so I can upload and post it.

And in other news, I have several new needlepoint designs that will be released to the public at a trade show in Dallas next month. I have promised to save them for the show, so until then I can't post photos here.

The best news for me is that I'm finally feeling better after suffering through a bout with the flu for the past 3 weeks! It was the strangest sickness I've ever had. There is definitely a new strain going around this year! It seems just about everyone I know has had it and some of them have suffered for over 3 months! So, I count myself lucky to be feeling better after only 3 weeks! I just pray I don't relapse!
