I have also been cleaning up my studio: my biggest issue is the growing binder and folders related to my mom’s care and finances that live on my floor, causing me stress and distraction. I reorganized those, tucked them under one easel and it feels better. Hopefully when I do my book shelves they can live there. In the fall someone recommended reading “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying up” by Marie Kondo. It is a sweet and very helpful book that goes along quite well with Lesson 4. Here is a quote: “I am convinced that putting your house in order will help you find the mission that speaks to your heart”. WOW!
I am posting one of my collage sketches that inspired me and the small piece I have been working on. I was thinking of impermanence and then worked with limitations in terms of materials. Trying not to be too judgmental- but I think I it needs more work, maybe more stitch not sure. I am often conflicted between very minimalist and more detailed work. I work mostly small but usually think big. Hmm. I can’t wait to sit down later and see what everyone has posted. I wish we were having show and tell in person and drinking tea!
