If Money Were No Object

As I walked through my downtown business district last week, and noticed several vacant storefronts, a long dormant dream awakened again. If money were no object and time were no object, how would you spend that?

Would you purchase equipment?

--New lenses
--A new camera, perhaps
--A new computer


My goal, my pipe dream has ALWAYS been to have a studio in my downtown district.  Not a big space, just somewhere I can show SOME of my photography and a small office where I can work.  I’ve thought about this for YEARS.  


Several years ago a storefront opened in Madison, Connecticut called The Art Bin.  Its where I went to have my photography framed and matted.  The pricing didn’t break my bank so I was able to frame and sell at at a price that didn’t scare potential customers away.  Shortly after the business owner opened, he transformed his location into a art co-op.  He allowed his customers and others to use the space to show and sell their work out of the business.  


After having my photography exhibit at The Art Bin, I started to formulate a goal to do this myself and especially after the business closed.  I’d love to have this happen and a few years ago I thought about asking artists I know about opening an artist co-op.  Never pulled it off.


Because to do something like this, it takes SO much more than money.  It takes time.


This will continue to be a pipe dream for some time to come.  But we all need to have something we are chasing.


What are you chasing?


In the meantime:
Focus on what's ahead of you.



Thanks for remembering the Art Bin
