Time to find a new studio

Here is a photo of the studio I have been painting in for the past 7 or 8 months. It is a 1 bedroom apt., it works out great I have been painting in the bedroom and use the living room for shipping and frame storage. I don't sleep here, so I can keep it pretty messy. Most of the paintings laying around are ones that I am working on for my one man show at John B. Strong Fine Art, in February. The 5 family house that this apartment is part of is being sold so I need to move out! I haven't found a new studio yet, but I think it should be pretty easy, lots of old mills in Fall River, which would work well as a studio.
Here is a photo out of the studio window today, after about 30 min of snow. That is my van parked across the way. I figured I would finish the painting I was working on and then head home before the snow got too bad. Turned out I waited too long. I tried driving but my van just kept sliding down the hill that it was parked on. So I gave up and decided to walk home.
Here I am almost home, it wasn't bad just a couple of miles. Kind of fun for a westerner like me. By the time I got to the park next to my apartment it was a full blown winter wonderland.
I ran into my girlfriend who was sledding with her niece. Still snowing, we are supposed to get 9-12 inches!

That really does look like a lot of fun. I am getting jealous reading about all the snow everyone is getting. Really.
This 70 degree sunshine does feel real good though.
Good luck with the studio search.

Hey Frank, Yeah it is pretty fun! I did a lot of shoveling today. I'll be in that warm weather soon, I am heading to L.A. in the next few weeks. I will keep you posted on the new studio!

Wow, that looks great. Are you out painting in that snow? I just bought some more fingerless gloves today, put those little heat packs in there and your set to go -

Hey Eric,

The snow didn't last too long, so I didn't get a chance. It was coming down hard for about 2 days, then a day later it rained all day, then that rain turned into ice, the next day was cold and windy, then it melted away! We are supposed to get some more tomorrow though, hopefully I will make it out there then.

Hey Logan, Happy New Year. Ha, you have to paint the melting snow fast. I've gone back up to the mountains a few times now and each time there is a little less. This last time, snow was still weighing down branches and had them buried; as the snow melted throughout the day, the boughs would suddenly POW fly up from the snow. It was quite noisy, happened a few times and sounded like something coming through the forest.
