It’s been 3.5 years now since I moved into the TinCan, my 1970 Airstream International Sovereign. I truly cannot believe that it has been that long. Time has gone by so quickly. Although I have only hit the road as far as Texas, and still have a normal day job, life in this TinCan has opened up doors and possibilities I never dreamed of. It has inspired my creativity and allowed me the freedom to dream of taking that creativity further in the future. Never let anyone tell you that living in a small space will keep you from having room for your passions. For me the opposite has proven true. I love the studio space I have in the TinCan. It’s my favorite place to work. Now with the view of palm trees swaying in the breeze out my front door, I’m enjoying it even more.
Small space vintage Airstream living has been a learning experience in so many ways, and it has been an interesting journey so far. I am certain it will continue to teach me things for a long time, as life itself is a constant learning experience. When I get to live forever maybe I will figure it all out. For now I’m convinced that less is more. Simplifying and downsizing has opened my eyes to life in ways I never really expected. I can only say I look forward to the next leg of the journey, the next project on the tin can, and the next artistic inspiration.
So come on in. Kick off your flip flops or snow boots and stay a while, but be warned the aluminum obsession might be contagious. If you catch it, be sure to sign up below to stay connected via e-mail or share us with your friends. Welcome to my TinCan studio and home.
