From the moment I bought my house I began sketching plans for my greenhouse and passive solar sun room. I chose the southeast side duplex as opposed to the northwest because it would have a better solar gain. First drawings had it only about 10 feet wide by about 15 feet long. And even when I drew up the final plans which said studio it was not intended for painting but mask making. It had grown from that ten feet to 16 and 21. And definitely more window than wall.

And then I stupidly put all the studio furniture below this space which makes hanging on this wall an acrobatic feat. The opening picture shows the other side of the door of this wall. I once had a computer desk under there which made hanging anything on that part of the wall impossible. Computer moved back to the living room.

The book shelf and the stand for the CD player have got to go. It takes up space that can be used for hanging pictures. And most of what is on these can move to the living room and shelves there I have cleared of books. And to the left of here would be a perfect place for some the print rack, etc.
I am painting larger canvases now and also into photography which gets relegated to panels.
Overflow of paintings and photography is in the living room which I am thinking needs a rearrange so it can be a secondary showroom. With the apartment not rented on the other side I could always use it as another gallery. Anyone want to go in on a coop venture?
The studio was suppose to be a greenhouse and passive solar sun room. And it is. But it is also now a studio/gallery. I need to repurpose it officially.
