Today I was a busy girl.
Cleaned up the house..... ran a couple errands this morning, I had a few things to take to the thrift store, and while I was there I stopped to look at old books. I picked up a couple old books with some old pictures and other things that will look good in a collage. Then when I got home I folded some more laundry, made lunch for kids, then went out to the studio and cleaned and organized, it looks so nice now!
I bought a couple Tupperware yesterday. Wow, they really helped. Makes finding things a whole lot easier. I was out there for a good 3 hours. It was LONG overdue. Do you know something I hate doing, I mean REALLY hate?! Putting gesso onto a new canvas, tedious. ugh. The frames Jere made are so nice, but I couldn't find preprimed canvas to fit, so I had to get a roll of the other stuff, NEVER AGAIN! Anyway -I needed to get them ready so I can actually put a series together, have the ideas, the sketches, just need to put it on canvas. I would like to sell some art some day. And even a children's book....And now that I am all de-cluttered it should be even more enjoyable to try! Plus, I want to reinstate girls day/night at the studio. I might even have an extra easel and painting area for a certain someone..... who might want to come over when the kids are at school ;).
Look at how neat it is now.... and is that an extra place to paint I see?
