Earlier this week I got a call from Brian. He and his fiance Debbie are getting married in September. I decided to invite them to my studio for the consultation, which at the time had ONE canvas gallery wrap hanging on the wall. He said sure! So I had three days to get the space presentable and I needed help. Fortunately Diversified Lab was running a special on prints above 16×20. Not only was it inexpensive but they got my order completed in less than 12 hours!
I also got some help from my good friends Holly and Nathan. Holly brought her design expertise and painting skills to the table. And speaking of table… we also hit an antique mall and found a AWESOME dining room set for a steal at Treasure Island on Manchester! Nathan helped out by spending a couple hours in his Sunday morning pickup up the new furniture and helping me drill some holes in my concrete and brick walls.
And as much as I don’t like shopping at Walmart… they did have the cheap 20×30 frames that I couldn’t find anywhere else on such short notice.
I climbed down off the ladder after adjusting the track lighting about 30 minutes before David and Debbie showed up. Just in time to take a very needed shower.
I really enjoyed my time with David and Debbie too. Even if they decide to go with someone else for their photographer, I’m thrilled to have met them. They gave me the incentive to get my butt in gear and make the space what it is. I’m very proud of it.
So here is one shot of the new place… a few more can be found on The Studio page.
