I still have mixed feelings about Chandra giving away all of her art.

It's sad in that one of my favorite artists isn't going to be making any more sculptures or painting any more paintings. But in a way, she stopped making any large pieces after her first eviction five years ago.

So when she told me she was being evicted from her current studio and that I could take my pick of artwork, I rented a van and rescued what art I could from the scrap heap.

The move day was a bit draining, and the inevitable clutter in Loft Ness made me feel a bit uncertain whether I had taken too much. But now that I've rearranged things, and began spring cleaning to make more room, I'm very happy to be surrounded by Chandra's art.

Today I visited Chandra... there's Open Studios, plus Chandra's having an eviction sale. =(

We talked for a bit, then I looked wistfully at the great many pieces that I'd love to own. Then I had the brilliant idea of doing my Giftmas shopping here...

... I actually spent more than maybe I should have. But it's for a good cause. And I purchased my favorite piece of hers. The SLR and new music toys can wait.
