My inner Sunset

The Inner Sunset – San Francisco neighborhood – the place I lived in my early adult years. It was an exciting time – relationships, jobs and having fun. I lived here on an entry level non-profit “salary.” I could walk to Golden Gate Park and the de Young Museum; longer walks to the Ocean (usually a bike ride). It had a neighbood feel. We came together after the big earthquake or celebrating the 49ers wins.

I moved to the other side of the park (outer Richmond) and then to upper Castro, before making the journey to the other side of the Bay.

We love doing day trips into the City – often going to the restaurants we onced took for granted. Love my City by the Bay!

fresh coat of paint

I painted my studio and I am so pleased! The walls were a dull brown and without much natural light, it made the space feel confined. What a difference a fresh coat of crispy white paint makes! Now how to figure out how to get some better lighting in there! I have to deal with florescent lights 😦 – if you have any suggestions on how to improve this, I am open! Right now, I have studio lamps. They take up space so I am looking to mount something from above.

If you are in the area – we will have an Open Studio at the Bothwell in Livermore – Sat Feb 29th 11am – 3pm – we are near some amazing wineries so this could be a fun stop before or after some wine tasting!
