A lot has changed in the past 24 hours. First, I took 3rd place in the Alpha Rho Tau members show at The Hive in Jenks last night for "Oren's Flowers" in floral category. Very happy with that.
The studio thing, well, yesterday we three met, Linda, Gil and I and looked at the front space that is in our building. Sadly there is only room for us girls so we had to make a decision. But first we three drove around to look at other prospects for the three of us but did not find anything that we could all afford. So back at the studio we made the decision that Linda and I would take the space and Gil will have to find another place at least for a year and we will keep looking for something to include, hopefully. We are still going to have some shows together this next year because we have been billed as Studio 3.
The space will work great for us two but it does need some cleaning and readjusting of some things but it will be great and we will have a GALLERY in the front that faces the street with windows. That is so exciting for us. The place has carpet and the landlord does not want to take it up but he's just fine if we spill paint or turpentine. Who knew! We're pretty careful but Linda's students, sometimes...will have to watch them. Also, the hitch is we have to be out of our space by December 15. CRAP! Unfortunately Linda husband will be a big factor in getting the place ready is out of town all next week and part of Thanksgiving week so that will leave us a whopping 2 weeks basically to move. Hope we can get it done and hopefully before Christmas. Thankfully I've already started Christmas shopping and I'm not hosting anything big except maybe a dinner party here.
Oh well, I'm happy and sad for Gil but it just can't be helped.
