|Studio in my basement of the house in Vernon, Connecticut.|
Since leaving the east coast in 2006 and moving to the southwest, I have painted in many different spaces from a "real" art studio on an artists' ranch to my own living spaces to friends' houses, to gallery spaces to house sitting gigs. Whew... it's been a trip to say the least.
East Coast–ConnecticutWhen I lived in Connecticut, I painted mostly in the wild woman fashion and taught that in my Wisdom Painting sessions. Those were held in Vernon, Greenwich, and Hartford.
I did, however, attend a local community college going for a fine art degree before I moved to the southwest. You can see a still life studio set up in the basement of my house above.

SouthwestFor the sake of this article, I want to focus on my painting studios while living in the southwest. My fine art painting really began in 2006 when I made that move and fully committed to my art.

New MexicoI moved to New Mexico after about four months in Arizona. When I lived in New Mexico, I painted in Silver City in many different locations.
And now, I'm back in Arizona, in Sedona.
Back at the RanchMy first studio painting experience in the southwest was a two-week stay as artist-in-residence at Rancho Linda Vista Artists' Ranch in Oracle, Arizona. I was still painting in oil. I had a one person show at their gallery in 2007. What a great experience.

And... that is where I will leave you until next week.
And You?What about you, if you are an artist, where have you painted? What's your favorite studio that you have painted in? Do you have a favorite way to set it up?
Until Next Week
