we have been painting my new little gallery space today. it's mostly finished. crisp white walls. tucked under a sloping ceiling. it's bright and empty. the wide warm plank floors give it just the roughness i need to love a room. collage and paintings are piled and waiting to glow against the new gallery walls. and i'm excited to see them quietly displayed so their best traits are emphasized. tracy's lovely little gallery across the hall, inspired me. a few weeks ago she and dave attacked her little room, painting and giving it a clean and new loveliness that let me notice her wonderful pieces in a new calm way. so i've been working to create my version of calm and white in my own little attic gallery. today it's painted.....i'll show photos when the work is hung. for now, a photo of edgar on the porch from this weekend is lovely too.
