Are we still calling it that? Or have we become politically aware and call it by it's rightful, God given name of suburbia.
Whichever the case, yes, we've purchased a house in the suburbs. More specifically a new house in Napa County.
When an artist moves away from a major metropolitan area, do her clients and interested patrons follow? If she builds it (paints it) they will come?
I am still pondering the answers to these questions dear readers, and more importantly having private strategy meetings (that means in my head) about marketing work in a newly acquired setting that I know nothing about (from the standpoint of establishing myself locally as an artist) yet, I have always painted the surrounding countryside and my new landscape has been a constant subject for me. My muse of sorts.
Living in San Francisco, painting works with agricultural themes. So it only makes sense that where I will be working now, in the upstairs studio of my new home will only inspire and excite me more to venture into the subject matter that I have always been drawn to.
