I spent a wonderful long day at the Brewery Artist's Colony with my good friend Tim who was here from Texas! I had heard vaguely about it-but wow-it was so intense! They have taken the old Pabst Beer Brewery and converted it into work spaces for all types of artists There are hundreds of working artists living there and alot of the studios are amazing-everywhere we looked there was incredible art-and living spaces-It was so inspiring. I really feel like this is where my heart is as an artist-just doing work-discovering what my true north really is. I've started to tell people that I will quit teaching soon-after the book hoopla- I just feel that this is right for me now
So check out the pictures on my flickr site-Words cant really describe it-but I was very jealous of these artists
I'll blog more tomorrow-Im off to Art and Soul on Friday so Im pretty swamped-as always but a good swamped!
