Studio @210 Water Street

In my mind I've been dithering about renting studio space for at least the last 9 months. I've been sweating/freezing in my garage far too long. There is this great artists' studio downtown Benton Harbor that I have admired for quite a while. Nice old, late '40/early '50s, service station that some smart folks bought, renovated and converted it into artist studios and one upstairs apartment. It's very cool. They use a lot of reclaimed supplies from other old buildings, cars...what-have-you. The coolness factor really cinched it for me. Get it? Cool in the summer....oh ok. Here.
Take a look, if you'd like.

Here we are at the front of the building.

Lovely patio, isn't it?

Another of the front....

The lobby area, head down that hall to the left......

....and you'll see this! The door to my space. Did you hear that? MY SPACE!

Bear with me this is gonna' be like baby pictures. From every angle.

Notice the one on the right is happy for me and going off to college in a couple of days. The one on the left is happy for me but not going off to college in a couple of days. The one on the left will be featured in the up coming studio cleaning segment....and knows what is in her future....

I am more than super jealous! It's going to be a great space, I can't wait to see it finished.

Keep snapping those pictures!
