Artist Roads 

Ramblings about Travels, Trailers & Paintings


Our life is changing

On the road a number of times this last couple months and planning more. With my better half living and working hours away, we have made the decision for a big change. After 25 years raising our children and living in Southern California, we are moving. Northern California, in the Auburn area of the state. Once i wrapped my head around the idea and he was sure of the job and the future of his work, it is actually kind of exciting. The thought of getting out of the crowds to literally, greener pastures. Hoping to take our time finding some property and my first want- a white and wood farm house, mid century or ranch home. So as each visit comes, we find new areas to look, new streets we like and get a handle on the prices and what is available. My heart wishes for a cottage on the beach but a farmhouse on rolling hills with oak trees- well, I could do it. (With an art studio and room for trailers!)

We leaped into a bid and it was accepted!

In the 1800's a miner built a cabin with 2 ft thick walls of local rock. A tiny house, now on 1.2 acres with an added art studio space, a loft, garage and room for a barn. We are moving! 

A lot to do and not much time. We now are into two mortgages until our So Cali home sells and i must sell, sort, donate and more to fit 3,400 sq foot into 1,000 sq ft. Into a rock cottage. Soon to be white and rock with a new front porch entry and drive and barn. Yay! just- YAY

So I might be off the grid for a bit and then back with new wonderful shabby cottage art studio adventures. Be safe- be happy and be careful out there!
