It’s About Time

I thought it was about time I write a blog post! I haven’t sat down to write one for quite a while now and it has been nagging at my brain. So here I am, breaking the ice with a post just to get me back into the swing of things. Not that I lack something to say…by no means…there is a lot to say!

We have settled into a new life at The Millworks, 340 Verbeke St, Studio 104, Harrisburg, PA 17102 since December 1, 2014. Joan Maguire and Christine Goldbeck and I are sharing the space and we are loving it!!! The Millworks officially opened on March 12, 2015 and we haven’t had time to look back since. Patrons of the arts and all walks of life have been flocking in to see the artist studios, sample the excellent homemade sustainable menu and have a nice cold craft beer.

If you come, the best time to visit the studios is First Saturday of every month, 10am-10pm, and Third in the Burg, 4pm-10pm (third Friday of the month). Other times are hit or miss to see the artists, as they come and go as their schedules permit.

As for myself, I try to be in the studio working at least 5-6 days per week. I am fortunate to be there during the day, and I am in most Saturdays too. I am finding my way back to being a still life oil painter recently. I’ll keep the mixed media and encaustic in the home studio for now. But I am having a great time working on my small series of still life oils. It’s been a wonderful fresh start for me and I feel content and happy!

I hope to see you at The Millworks soon!!!
