Dick Builds 7 Arts Studio
“The Happening Place”
Dick had enjoyed the benefits of his Workshop for many years. Now he was willing to build me an Art Studio separate from the house if I’d like that.
“Would I ever,” came my delighted response. This would also include my own 7 Arts Studio deck.
The original idea was to have 7 Arts as my personal studio where I’d create my own art. Not a people place! This did not last long. Soon it morphed into a Community Place, as if by it’s own powerful impetus.
Here’s the story. Something close to magical happened to me in 1992, when I returned home with Jim from a transforming month’s retreat in Rio Caliente Health Spa in Mexico. What a splendid unforgettable time!
I couldn’t help it, I am now a full-fledged “People Person!”
I envisioned the future studio as “The Happening Place” which included the following events…
Between us, Dick and I carefully planned how to make the best use of the space chosen to build the studio. Let’s not forget Dick was building this whole Studio virtually by himself, with only occasional help from his grandson Alex, his son-in-law Scotty… and me, to hold a board now and then!
Dick started in 1995, taking most of the summer and fall to complete this amazing project. Included here is a list of what I wanted…
I called my place “7 Arts Studio.” The sign above the door is made of raised wooden letters which are classy and distinctive. Why did I call it 7 Arts Studio? Good question! I had always like the number 7 – my favorite number.
Someone asked me once, “Can you tell me the 7 arts that you practice?”
Well, shucks, with a question like that, I better come up with some good answers…
I thoroughly enjoy my life in 7 Arts these days, however one thing had to go – namely time and space to do my OWN art work. I realize this will have to wait till Jim and I clear out and clean up; paint and beautify Dick’s Workshop.
You can be sure I’ll have it all painted up in bright, fun colors, along with mobiles and other enticements to please the senses.
This will then become my personal Art Studio. My great helper, Blake, who fixes so many things for me around our house and garden, assures me he can help me set up running water, toilet and any other necessities for a self contained art studio.
I believe a slew of Magical Angels continue to surround us here at The Pines. Life will only get better and better!
