Catching Up Again

          I cant believe that it has been so long since my last post!  I guess I am the world's most reluctant blogger.  I will try to keep up with posting my more recent work.  I have been working on several new paintings and have most recently reorganized my studio in suite #326 at the Western Avenue Studios.  Both of my original studio mates have moved on, Paula Mingolelli (thecreativehands@comcast.net) has moved into her own studio on the fourth floor in the A mill and Winnie Liakos no longer maintains a studio at the Western Avenue complex.  I am happy to announce that I have two new studio mates Denis Rainis and Judy Heron.  Denise works in many media including watercolors, pastels, and oils and Judy works in watercolors, oils and is a talented photographer.  I have also moved my position into the rear left area of the studio which is quite large at 530 square feet, and we are in the process of creating a small gallery in the front of the studio where we can showcase art from all three artists.

        At Western Avenue many changes have taken place.  There are now 40 new live in studio lofts, as well as 35 new studios on the 4th floor of the A mill.  Plans are being implemented which will create more studio space on the 1st floor of the A mill.  Soon there will be a new entrance into the complex and more windows will be added.  The parking lots have been reconfigured and new landscaping and lighting has been installed.  The cooperative Loading Dock Gallery and the Loading Dock area are also being remodeled.

      The most exciting thing to happen in recent weeks is that at our annual kick off party held by Karl, the building owner, we were informed that we are now the largest community of artists in a complex under one roof in New England and perhaps in the entire country.

      So as you can see much has happened in the last year.  In the next posts I will attempt to post some of the work that
I have recently produced and as always your comments are always welcome.   Be sure and visit Western Avenue the first Saturday of every month from 12 noon to 5pm, when "Open Studios" happens and most artists can be found in their studios willing to talk about and sell their work.
