This is the mess I have created this afternoon. I'd planned to do it on Sunday but I had a bit of the flu and spent most of the day in bed. I didn't feel well this morning either so I spent most of the morning in bed, but by mid afternoon I started to feel better. I enlisted the aid of tim the toolman and braved the black hole of junk that was my studio
I've even hung up some cute little flying birds above the door and made a very simple curtain to filter the harsh morning sun that has faded the floor rug. It needs a lot of work still finishing off the building, window edging and putting an insulated ceiling in. Because it is very very very hot in summer and a little cold in winter, though give me a Perth winter any day over the heat of high summer!
ode to nature by Alisa Burke. It is about finding inspiration in nature. Mostly for me I'm interested in it to use as a prompt to get me back into it. Also I could do with a bit of exercise so a walk around the park or river with a sketch book has got to be better than nothing at all! Then it won't be exercise it will be for art's sake. ;)
This clean out is the beginning . One of the ladies I work with is having a baby and has asked me to paint something for her baby's room. I should have done it weeks ago but I've had nowhere to do it! So hopefully I'll be able to post my progress at getting back to being creative here. I really don't want to waste my day off doing non arty stuff so having somewhere to work is important.
Now I'll have to be really firm about not letting anyone pile junk in my studio!
