Artist Retreat Project by Lorenz Peter
During the Processor spring tour I came across this property, a small farm house on a 2 acre piece of land on a forested road, across from a park. I decided to take a chance and buy the property. A repossessed house, the owner passed away and the bank sold it cheap. For two years the place sat gathering flies and dust. I arrived in May with little more than a swiss army knife and a shop vac. I set to work, cleaning and transforming the place, pealing away wall paper and vinyl floor, rescuing old furniture, etc.
This old shed sits on the cusp of a small ravine that separates the backyard portion of my land into the forested area of the property.
Here is an old cabinet I dragged up from the basement, scraped it, bleached it... etc. Now it serves as a work table/buffet table/tool holder etc.
Followed by this frog song inspired ink on paper. During my stay here I drew another 8 pages for my next graphic novel. I plan to turn this place into a sort of retreat for artists & writers. The space is rather raw at the moment but does have hot water, electricity, heating, wood furnace, kitchenette... There are only mats to sleep on and furniture is minimal, but the option to rent is there. I want to cater to artists rather than tourists, so any interested patrons should send an artists resume and plan. I should have this place fully rent-able by next spring, but the rate will be much cheaper now. Any interested people should contact me for details and prices.
