Beauty From the Beast

The soot filled beast

Quelling the beast

Beauty restored

I've been dealing with a 6 week disaster of epic proportions. My entire studio was the victim of a disastrous kerosene heater debacle. The space was completely filled with soot -- that is all 3 levels including my paintings in storage, not to mention hundreds of photos, books, supplies, photography equipment, computers and 28 years worth of illustration from my previous life. I have been dealing with the clean up ever since with the help of ServPro. Without them, this beast would live on. The clean up will continue deep into the future as we work our way through stacks of paintings. The end is insight and I'm looking forward to resuming painting. I remember I painted at one time.
