A Bigger Room of Her Own

Groucho Marx once picked up the phone and quipped, "Room service? Send up a bigger room!"
This came to mind as I recently moved into a larger studio at Marshall Arts. I loved the huge window
in my smaller studio, but my paintings were feeling cramped and longing to show their individuality. Now,
a skylight illuminates them as they show off, displayed more artfully. And, I've found a freeness in the open space,
painting with more energy and abandon. Plus, it's enlightening to sit and look, taking in which masterpieces really
reveal my passionate intentions, which paintings don't quite.
One of my favorite authors, Dr. Seuss, once said, "You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have
to learn a lot, by yourself, sitting alone in a room." So now, I wonder, will I think greater thoughts and gain
more expansive knowledge, now that I have a bigger room?
