The majority of the week, this is what my art table looked like...pretty much chaos. I don't have a lot of space. I pretty much have turned my dining room area into a full time art studio...lol. The only time we eat here is on holidays. I'd love a real studio, but I don't think I'd want it totally separate from the main hub of the house. I kinda like being in the midst of things. Unless it gets too chaotic and I have too many things going on at once. I almost always work on several things at once, it just is an effective way of doing things. I can't imagine just doing one painting. Maybe my tune will change down the road, but for now, this is how I roll.
What am I working on?
2 challenges for Cloth Paper Scissors
2 Custom Pieces
1 painting for an upcoming prize I'm doing for someone else's blog--stay tune for this one!!
I'm also working on some small samples for an article I'm writing...that is pretty much due this week but I'm stuck on something so I set it aside...but by sticking it aside, I may be late for the deadline. I'm trying, trying...but something isn't just clicking for me and I don't want to do something I'm not proud of...there's a fear of failure I dont' normally have. Sometimes just putting things off for a bit gives me a new perspective once I come back...if I'm late, then I"m late.
I'm also working on a new batch of magnets for a few different places-I've sold out of my set of blue ones and now am on to a new collection called "Green Apple Sweet HeART magnets"..lol Despite the fact that they are not all green and have nothing to do with apples is beside the point. I liked the name :)
After seeing all this choas, I just had to take back the madness and clean things up. I bought another 3 drawer plastic cart to organize my paint, my sprays and some of my watercolors. Phew...what a relief...
...a relief for all of ten minutes then I was back in the saddle! It doesn't take me long to make a mess. But what beautiful things arise from chaos!
I'm sad that this is my last day of vacation. It's amazing though, I can get more done when I'm working......I guess I just work better under pressure than I do when I have all the time in the world. Amazing revelation.
Hope you have a creative week and pull treasures out of your own chaos!
