starting out

Our heroine is an artist.

That is, when the story starts out.

It's going to be quite a bit interrupted by life. At least shoved to the back burner.

However, it probably has to tie into the opening setting where she lives in a location with a lot of people living very close together.  I was trying to speculate whether she can have even a small garden or  whether she must content herself with a window box.  

It does not cohere very well in imagination yet, and it's the first scenes. . . . sigh.

At least the economics of an artist living in a crowded location are clear.
