As some of you may remember, before the BRG hiatus I was in the process of moving into a new apartment, and creating a new work space. I now live in one 840 square foot room that serves many functions; its a big open modern space and I LOVE it. Before we moved I was nervous there wouldn't be enough division between work space and home life, but now I don't feel that way at all... it feels really efficient having everything in one space, and we had to pare down so its kind of nice not being able to own a lot of stuff. Moving out of my old studio I couldn't believe the stuff I was holding onto for "artistic inspiration," which I now see was basically license to be a pack rat! Okay so this is what it looked like...

My drafting table is under a giant window, against a wall of exposed brick, and looking out over an engineering/construction business. While I'm painting bunnies I get to watch all kinds of fork lifts and other handy vehicles moving poles around:
Here is the view of my studio from the center of the apartment. My collection of giant plants turn out to be the perfect room dividers:
