Every artist needs a place to work. I just recently moved into the space below, 981 square feet in the East Village in San Diego. I’m on the second floor over an architecture school. I can’t tell you how exciting and terrifying this move was and is. For the first time in my artistic life I have ample space to work, show and store my paintings.
Moreover there is adequate ventilation, privacy and ability to control the temperature. These seem like small things, but they are not. Space cost money and quality space costs even more. So this is a huge leap for me…out on my own, trying to make it all work. “Live the dream” as they say. I had no idea how hard it is to live the dream, but it’s my dream and I can’t live any other.
