*** UPDATE ***
I am thrilled to announce that the farmhouse has been painted!
Thanks again to everyone who helped make this project a real possibility.
Completed early in May, the house is getting lots of positive comments from the neighborhood! I hope the art work acquired brings joy, and provides food for many hours of thought. Consider this an open invitation to come and visit me any time you might be headed to sunny San Antonio!
Dear friends and family,
You may already know that I've spent 2+ years creating a studio and retreat center from an 1890's farmhouse property in the heart of San Antonio. The house was in rough shape when I bought it, but artists see possibility others might not notice—and I jumped in. The interior of the house is wonderful now - with guest quarters upstairs (check the apartment out on AirBnB!) and space downstairs for whipping up meals, or meeting as a group for writing or critique.
The wet studio has been baptized officially by several groups who've visited for research and independent study. My vision for the space continues to unfold, as the ongoing renovation continues as well.
I'm in the painting party stage and you're invited!
The exterior of the farmhouse is the final step in my three year renovation plan. Badly in need of rebuilding, the largest exterior porch is just finished. Now I'm picturing the drab blue paint gone! In its place? Olive, cream and touches of violet - to match the colors on the studio building.
Of course you can't pick up a literal paintbrush and help, but you can help me with the rather daunting expense—by considering the purchase of a piece of my artwork. Zenna recently helped me inventory twenty years worth of work—some older, some new, and a few award-winning pieces from my personal collection. Prices are fair and could be considered wholesale—in a effort to make this a win-win for everybody!
If you find a piece in my virtual gallery that interests you, please write to me to be sure it's still available. I prefer checks but Paypal is ok if it suits you. Shipping is not included and will be calculated upon purchase. Questions? Write to me.
Happy browsing. And thanks in advance for helping with my project!
