Abandoned buildings

Abandoned Studio

Since I began painting in 1986, I’ve had at least a half dozen dedicated studios and combinations of gallery and studio. It’s been a couple of years since I last had a proper space to paint at and I can feel the urge growing. Whenever I see an abandoned interior like the one above from Zadar/Croatia, I try to assess whether or not it would work for me. The very first studio I had in Malmö was in an old brick building on Neptunigatan and it was torn down a couple of years ago. It was huge, had great light, and was reasonably affordable. I do much of my current creative work on a 27″ iMac. But I long to paint on a canvas the size of the wall behind it.
