An opportunity arose to move from my Long Island City studio into a studio just down the block from my current apartment in Greenwich Village. It shortens my roundtrip commute from over an hour to 5 minutes! I will miss my artist friends from my old studio building but not the subway commute.
What would you do if you discovered an extra hour in your day? Take up yoga? Sleep more? Learn to knit? I am going to use it to make more art. Leave your comments below. I am interested in everyone’s answers.
In the next month’s newsletter, I will show you my new studio space and some original artwork in progress. Stay tuned!
I just delivered 29 of my paintings to Matted LIC for an upcoming solo exhibition…hence the empty wall in my studio. See all the nails without art hanging from them? This poor little painting didn’t make the cut!
Opening night this Thursday, Sept. 22 from 6-8pm at Matted LIC, 46-36 Vernon Blvd, Long Island City. I would love to see you there (free wine and food, plus my eternal gratitude!).
Today is the last day of the LIC Arts Open and LIC Open Studios. At my studio today (12-6 pm), I will be giving away monotype notecards. I will also be demonstrating how I make these monotypes and the many layers it takes to create one. Please stop by to get your FREE notecard. Here’s a glimpse of some cards I made yesterday during the open studio tour. Reis Studios, 43-01 22nd Street, Studio 225, Long Island City.
Here’s a look at my printing demo set up (while it’s still clean!) Come by and try your hand at printing too!

Why make color charts? To keep you organized between multiple studios.
