(Bookshelf & Wall immediately where the door is)
Almost halfway through the first month of the new year, and here I am still dithering around with an art room that I haven’t settled into yet. I have been moving things around since January 1st, seriously! Pinning things up, taking things down, shoving desks up against one wall, leaving them for a few days while I sit on the floor with a coffee in one hand and a pen in the other trying to “be an artist” and feel inspired.
Its too tidy.
Thats the problem.
I work in a mess usually. (I’m being open and transparent here!). From chaos, I make art. Usually on the floor, or squished up amidst a heap of other unfinished projects. Inspiration flows, ideas fuse and meld together, and another new “thing” is born. I can’t d0 pretty. I’m not a Pinterester person. I don’t do Instagram Rooms. *sigh* My house is lovely – the rooms that are on public view, yes, fit for anything. But….MY space reflects my busy mind. (Did you like that turn of phrase? Busy mind….not scatty or distracted…busy!)
So anyway. I thought if I break the ice now….maybe….I can do something useful.
(Drawing/painting corner next to the window, facing the door. Stack of art supplies is in the boxes next to the chair – need to move them. Brown bag holds more pens and pencils.)
(Sewing corner – white cover on the sewing machine. Textiles and sewing stuff is under the table/next to it.)
So thats all I am brave enough to show right now. I’m thinking I might change it, because it still doesn’t feel right. But I had to do this and get it out there.
The walls look nice though……ha!
