How many artists does it take to get a big old couch into an ancient adobe studio?
Actually, it’s a bit of a riddle or a trick question or something, because no matter how many of us there were, no many how many heads we put together (even including Bill Loyd’s, and you all know by now that Bill is the ULTIMATE problem solver), we couldn’t do it! NO!
Anna and I found this great old couch at Pieces in Taos (a fabulous thrift store) last month and put it on layaway. We were SO EXCITED to move it into the studio that’s attached to our gallery. So we borrowed Bill’s big truck and drove up there to get it. To tell you the truth, we didn’t realize how big it was. Sitting amongst all the other furniture at Pieces it seemed petite. Not. WE NEVER MEASURED IT!
And these old adobe places have very narrow doors. So Bill was the one who had to break it to us. No moss-colored turn of the century couch in the studio for us.
But the good news is, we put a wonderful old chair and ottoman on layaway when we were there to get the couch and are on the prowl for another. So the studio will be home-ied up soon enough. The fact is you just can’t keep we artists down. We’re tough characters, after all, and we were born to create—with a couch or a couple of chairs. It makes no difference to us!
Love to you all,
