Lately there has been a huge turn over. People have moved out and are now working at home, some are starting graduate school and are entitled to a studio space. (As expensive as the tuition is, was, I have to admit, I loved graduate school, three years to paint, see painters painting, talk painting, have other people talk about your painting. What's not to LOVE?) I still have friends in "Shanty Town," and I will make new friends, but it is definitely the beginning of a new phase.
From what I have observed so far, most of the new people come in at night, so I don't see them very much. Some, I haven't seen at all. I just see the clues that they have been in, in the night. I see a chair moved, I see the changes in their work...
It is like the elves have visited.
Anyway, open studios should be interesting.
I am still working on the shy pelican, that's giving a fetching look over it's shoulder.
