A Day in the Life of.....

For all of you out there who think the life of an artist is one of leisurely creativity - here's what I have to deal with in my studio every winter:

Mopping up the flood after the first rains of the season. (The membrane on the roof above is compromised by construction works.)

Leaks in the ceiling over my painting area.

An afternoon spent (with a friend - thank you John!) fixing plastic to the ceiling to catch all the water.

A funnel, some 3/4" bilge hose, and some duct tape....

....and voila! My own drainage system. Thank you Ace Hardware!


  1. But hey, it's creative engineering at least. Hi Catherine :-)
