Good morning! I have much to celebrate, but no time to spend doing it . . . at least, not until the holiday weekend is over! Still, here's the good news: I paid my first month's rent & picked the keys up yesterday to my NEW OFFICE & GALLERY IN TOWN!!!! Whoo-hoooooo! Can you believe it?!
The landlord says that the space is 300 square feet, but I think it's way more than that - it will be interesting to actually measure it. The anteroom is the larger of the two, and I will use that as the gallery. There are no windows in it, but that's okay because I was actually worried about sunshine bleaching out any of my prints and canvases that I display there. The inner, smaller room has a nice, albeit small (but large enough to open & put a plant in) southeast-facing window. And, the neighborhood, just a block up from the main drag and yet still zoned Commercial (it was grandfathered in) is a nice one for walking the dogs. Unfortunately, Maisy & Tucker can't come inside with me . . . but considering all the other positive characteristics this particular space offered, I couldn't say no just because of that.
I'm hoping to get out of work early enough tonight to go spend some 1-1 time in there, just sitting and soaking it in. If I do, I'll surely take pictures . . . even tho there's not much to see right now.
But, finally, my own PROFESSIONAL business space!!!!
