Hello! Remember me? It’s been months since I’ve posted, since I’ve painted, but we’re finally resettled in New York City!! Within a few days of being in the city, we found the perfect apartment in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. We love it! It’s a 4-story walk-up and we’re on the top floor so we’re getting lots of exercise! It has exposed brick, high ceilings, wood floors and a beautiful view of Manhattan.
I carved out a small space between the kitchen and living room, right by a window, for a studio space. It works.
I was getting so stressed about not being able to paint for so long. Honestly, I thought I would completely forget how to! When I stepped up to the easel, I was nervous, but apparently, it’s like riding a bike. I can’t tell you how happy I was to complete my first painting of 2016!
We’ve been getting to know our neighborhood a bit and looking for ways to meet people. It’s all about starting over and building community from scratch. and that feels overwhelming. Every artist I see is so young, will I ever find my tribe?
So, yeah, I’m a little overwhelmed and it’s going to be a challenge to make this home, but I’m already in love with New York and our new apartment. I think this is going to be the best decision we ever made.
