Today I had Tim help me finish sorting the stuff we liberated from the studio a few weeks ago. It has been sitting in unruly piles in the patio area between the lounge and studio. We sorted threw and donated the last of the junk that came out of my space. There is one little corner to sort still but it is actually quite a usable space now and I can now walk into my studio without distraction or guilt that I should be doing something else.
Once it was done I sat down and made a sketch of a painting I am going to do for a lady from work who is having a baby. I should have done it weeks ago but haven't come close to deciding quite how to do it but now I am clearer on the composition. She wanted a cute painting of owls, I'm going to do something inspired by the work of Rebecca Cool using floral fabrics glued to the canvas and painted around. Next Tuesday I'll aim to put paint brush to canvas.
