Studios #4 & #5 - Milwaukee/Ft. Lauderdale

I moved to Milwaukee to study the collection at the Milwaukee Art Museum.  I lived across the street from the building for 7 months.  I spent almost every day there learning as much as I could about their collection in the short time that I had.  It was not a vacation, and money was tight but I feel I left with a good memory of the collection at MAM.

Studio #4 was in the second bedroom of the two bedroom apartment I rented across from MAM.  I did paint four complete works there.  I have no photos of the actual studios, so just enjoy some pics of what I created while I was there.

Studio #5 was in Ft. lauderdale Florida.  I had completed my study of The Milwaukee Art Museum so i needed a change and i did not want to return to Minneapolis just yet.  I moved there for personal reasons that did not work out so I promptly moved back to minneapolis after 5 months.

Alas I have no pictures of the studio, it was gorgeous.  I created some good work in florida, as living there changed me artistically and set me on the direction that still I find myself going.
