New Digs; New Work

Recently, I was accepted into an artist studio group, Junctionview, where an old warehouse was renovated with many art studios. I couldn't be happier. I have my own space away from the house where I only work on my art. It's fabulous for me.
I have an amazing studio at home; however, I just had the hardest time working there. There was always a load of laundry to do, a phone call to take, a visitor - you know the drill. I just wasn't good at working at home. Has anyone else had this problem. I can't believe I am the only one.

So here's a little bit of my current work in progress. It's a colored pencil drawing on Stonehenge paper which measures 14 x 22". It's very slow work and the piece is large for a colored pencil drawing (and for me), but I am very happy with it so far.

Yes! I do have this problem. Right now I go to the MAC in Worthington to get away from my frolicking felines and my whenever housework. My dream and goal is to make my garage into a studio. That means tearing the thing down and building a new one. Right brained activity requires that we have NO distractions and therefore a studio away from distractions is the only thing that works. I used to work at the drug distribution company next door to Junctionview and I never went into the studios during that short time. Nuts, that's what I am! May I ask if the rent is reasonable? Good job on getting a studio there!
