I have a moving sale update. Just received these pictures from happy customers, Todd & Erin Ziaja. My paintings, Get It While You Can, and Reliable are now theirs, and hanging up in their home in Austin, Texas. I am always very grateful when my work is displayed on the walls of someone’s home. I also appreciate seeing how they’ve chosen to display my work. It feels great.
January 2021:Brett & Kelli are a couple, after being close friends for a few years. May 2021:After months of discussion, they decide to move to Chattanooga. They buy a house in Chattanooga. Brett puts his loft on the market. June 2021:Brett, Kelli, and Grace move to Chattanooga. Brett’s loft in Atlanta is sold. September 2021:Brett & Kelli get engaged, making it official. October 2021:Brett & Kelli get married at an intimate ceremony on the historic Walnut Street Bridge, located in downtown Chattanooga. Grace and the officiant were the only ones there. The day was ours and it was perfect.
Once I decided to move, I knew I had to have an artwork moving sale. My small, one room studio was jammed with my art. Paintings made and exhibited over the years. So prices were slashed, and deals were made. Paintings were picked up. Paintings were dropped off. Paintings were shipped.
This photo was sent to me by the happy customers. My painting looks magnificent in their spacious home. Love it.
After some anxious moments, I decided to jump in with both feet! I am moving from Atlanta to Chattanooga. This is absolutely, one of the biggest decisions I have ever made. I’m moving to Chattanooga with my girlfriend (and future wife) and her daughter. My loft in Atlanta is in a hot area of town. Time to cash in and invest in a new future with Kelli and Grace in Chattanooga. Now that I’ve decided this is what I’m doing, my anxiety has lowered and I feel excited. I feel good about this.
I’ll miss my place on Wylie Street (and it’s view of my street art) and a lot of people in Atlanta. I lived in Atlanta for 15 years, and in this location for the last seven. The next chapters of my life will be in Chattanooga.
Major life changes came often in 2021. They played a big part in my extended absence from this blog. Here are a few photos from moving day.
