Wisbeyerstrasse at the border of Prenzlauer Berg and Pankow.

The drawing I'm working on in the new work space.As of yesterday I happily installed myself in a new work space that a friend has so generously offered in exchange for artwork -- a new 'Artist in Residency' of sorts. I'm working on finishing up the last few pieces for my solo show in Orlando, FL this coming March, so the timing could not have been better. We are also planning on organizing educational workshops for adults and children as well as curating artist exhibits and talks for international and Berlin based mid-career artists. It's nice to be able to commute from time to time so I'm not only grateful for the opportunity to work in this space, but also for the impetus to get out of my kietz (small neighborhood in German) that I'm so comfortable in--and get out to be temporarily uncomfortable (but not really) -- I really do enjoy taking the S-Bahn, occasionally. Once this cold spell passes, I'll be joy riding it up on my bike!
