What To Do With a Mid Life Artist’s Life???

Filed under: General — Artflux at 3:20 pm on Friday, April 1, 2005

Recently, I have been elated with the outcome of last month’s exhibition, the conclusion of the depositions and an upswing of sales of my photographs. Then I spent a pleasant weekend in radio heaven. There’s never enough money though. Suddenly after an Easter Sunday meeting with my attorney things went into a tail spin. The thought of having to give up my home of some 25 years to pay off mounting legal fees brought about thoughts of

Like were am I going to go?

I have grown accustomed to having my own lab and studio right in the heart of NYC.

In reality it makes sense to work the property, renting it out high end like many of the artists who settled here in lower Manhattan have done. Let’s make way for the hedgefund boys. If I were to relocate the problem is there isn’t really anywhere for an artist to go in Manhattan any more unless your on a trust fund or something. I was bummed out by the thought of loosing what I love. I realize that in the end I will need to barrow astronomical amounts of money to pay the law fees. Especially with the upcoming trial.

I have no clue as to where I am going to move. I have a year or so to work it out and find a place temporarily. So that’s what I have been doing this week. I’m trying to research relocation while I renovate to rent the place out carving it into high end rental space. My work is suffering a little as a result. Bros and sisters freinds have been supportive.

I did take a bike ride up the Hudson River Park to break up the afternoon. Yoga class early AM works wonders for relaxation. As the moon passes though my sign of Sagittarius thinks should be getting more manageable but not really.
