I can’t believe I haven’t shared photos of my awesome new studio space with you, yet! In my defense, it has been a busy summer. This new space is just a few blocks south of my Ravenswood location on Hermitage, I moved at the end of June. It’s much larger, in fact, the largest studio I’ve ever had.The wonderful glass block windows remind me of my beloved first studio, in my home on Oakley, in Bucktown. These are some recent photos take prior to last weekend’s Open Studio Sale. If you missed it, appointments are always welcome…just contact me!

Sorry to have disappeared for so many weeks…it's been a busy summer, I've gotten some much needed R & R and hope to share some posts of my activities soon. In the mean time…I moved my studio, again! The new space is much bigger and I love it…hope some of you can come by next weekend and check it out. I'll have new paintings available from the Fields Project, and for the first time, even some of my ceramic work. There will be some lovely deals on older works and prints, too. Can't make it? You are welcome to make an appointment for a studio visit at your convenience, or check out my paintings at AnnesArt.com and let me know what you are interested in.
