Deconstructing my art room for a new one – June 10, 2022

Nothing quite as telling that Sheila and I are deep into our move than a contrast look at my art room now ( above ) vs just 3 months ago, lol! 😊

I’m gonna miss my 1st ever north light experience for painting, but know it’ll be a great change for us overall! Plus I’ll still have my daylight lamp ( Brightech Litespan – Bright LED Floor Lamp ) I’ve had since Christmas 2018!

But I think what surprised me most looking at the before ( below ) and now ( above ) images, is – after I adjusted the heights of the middle 3 of the 5 steel shelves – how much I’ve discovered in just one year about what size shelves I need where, for when I’m actively painting.

Now I’ll have 2 easy to reach upper shelves for my tubs of mediums and pastes, plus their backups and occasional mixture-concoctions – I tend to keep and use my 16 & 32 oz plastic Golden containers of gels & mediums 🎨 👨‍🎨

And actually, seen in the lower right hand corner of my pic below, those tubs are all kinds of blends of left-over paints already in gel or molding paste mixtures, often with small dabs of similar color left-overs palette-knifed into one of the sides of the container.

Very handy & economical way to waste less paint!

Now, with the top shelves more appropriately spaced, I can shift some of those on the floor to eye-level shelving.

Our new location has so much light in most the apartment ( see living room pic below ), I may be able to re-shoot my file shots for some of my work and reload them to Fine Art America, and, maybe, even be inspired to create more new posters of my originals. That can be kinda fun too 🙏 ☺️

The steel shelving unit btw, we got from Amazon ( of course ) and I truly like it so much I’m showing its shopping page below, on Amazon, with my original purchase date notated 😊

From what Sheila and I’ve seen so far of our new 55+ community, The Lady Bird, we’ll be surrounded by like-minded able bodied seniors, yet literally steps away from Lady Bird Lake ( Google images link ) and the vast and various population of Austin enjoying the bike paths and lake nearby – a some what tamed river actually 😊

Thanks so much everyone! Stay well – please 💕



I support passage of The Voting Rights Act 🙏❤️😊

Voting, in our democracy, is the purest form of expression.

Dissenting, affirming, protesting – 
– all flow through the form of the ballot, not, the bullet…

Stay well everyone – for oneself, and for those who need us most..the children….



See & Buy My Art 👩‍🎨 🎨 ❤️
