Looking Forward to Using My New Studio Space

I am thrilled that it is only a few days until I get to use some studio space at the Nepean Sportsplex. To get ready for it I have prepared 7 canvases in our condo's Hobby Room. Up until a few days ago I didn't know we had such a room!

There is no outside light in the room but it is well lit with fluorescent lights and is very spacious. I guess it has mainly been used by woodworkers and other hobby activities. I will try to dry my pieces there but will have to be aware of sawdust and dirt form other users.

I have checked all my supplies and all the oil paints are still good (although the tops were a little hard to get off), the low odor brush cleaner is good as is the Liquin. All the brushes are in good shape as well. Remember, I haven't used these items for over three years!

Also, just got my membership card from the Nepean Fine Arts League ( and will hopefully be participating in their shows and events coming up this year.

I will update this blog when I get some paintings done.
