The Gift of Change

Leider können wir unseren Newsletter aus Zeitgründen momentan noch nicht ins Deutsche und Französische übersetzen, dafür bitten wir um Nachsicht und hoffen (für diejenigen, die

des Englischen nicht mächtig sind, Ihr Online-Übersetzer macht seine Sache gut!

 

 

Pour l'instant nous ne sommes, faute d'un manque de temps, pas en mesure de traduire notre Newsletter en allemand ou français. Nous nous en excusons et nous espérons

(pour ceux qui ne savent pas parler englais) que votre traducteur en ligne fera l'affaire !

The Gift of Change

 

Over the last two years we have experienced quite a few art and personal changes at Atelier 325.  We find these are giving us new opportunities and forcing us to meet new challenges.

 

Change can be both gut wrenching and good.  We continue to be reminded of the things we live and find important - family, art, friends and good health.  We don’t always meet these challenges with grace, but we are always reminded we should.

 

 

As we get ourselves entrenched in 2018, the challenges of settling into the US studio in Montana continue.  Yes, Kim still has materials and supplies as well as wrapped paintings in Houston.  The Missoula studio is still only partly unpacked, but the art making continues in the middle of the chaos.  Kim is just happy to be making art.

In Germany, Andrea is overseeing a complete renovation of the European studio - right down to wall removal, window adding and electrical service.  Art making does not stop there, either.  She has taken over a small room in her home to work and finds solace in continuing to create.

It is sometimes a challenge to work this way, however we are both using these experiences to influence our work.  We are always watching how our life experiences make a difference in our art.
