Back on July 3rd, I posted a piece called A Daunting Task that was to be continued about the renewal of my 40-year-old tired and frayed studio. Well, it’s done! Almost everything is back in place. I vowed to eliminate 1/3 of the clutter and succeeded. The walls and ceiling are patched and freshly painted by me. Joe Rocco’s company Artistic Floors by Design put in the beautiful new hardwood floor that replaces the old paint spattered and worn out wall-to-wall carpet. Joe was highly recommended by my neighbor who builds custom homes. Joe was a pleasure to work with. There are still a few pictures to hang, but I’m finally painting again and feeling as refreshed as my new surroundings.
Eldridge Hardie’s ART OF A LIFE IN SPORT: Chronicles and images of hunting and angling from the outdoors that inspire and inform my paintings along with thoughts and information about this wonderful journey of art and sport.
