Well, I just ran across this an art community online and decided to join. The first task is to get your studio ready, and to post some pix of it. Everyone is talking about how messy theirs are. Having no shame, I posted the following:
I am not posting pix of my studio yet because I can’t even get in there to take one. How’s that for messy? I have been trying to motivate myself to work on it so this is a good push to do that. I will post pix as soon as I – and a camera – can get in there. At the moment it just looks like a storage facility, which is what it basically is.
I had my hardwood floors refinished and used the studio to store furniture and such because I wasn’t having those floors done – too much fun to slop paint all over the ugly tile in there.
OK, so that sounds like such a reasonable, logical excuse for a messy studio, Right? Well, here’s the rest of the story, as Paul Harvey would say – I had the floors done in August. Of 2005. Now that it’s 2007, that sounds like a very, very, very long time ago.
I have been thinking for a couple of weeks that not using the studio has been making me cranky. So, all the more reason to get it useable. No one likes me cranky – esp. not me.
Perhaps my role here is to make everyone else feel better about themselves.
