I just reviewed Ricë Freeman-Zachery's book Creative Time and Space. And one of the important points she makes is that you can make art ANYWHERE - a tiny desk like Theo Ellsworth, an upgrade from his backpack, or a travel suitcase and hotel room like Traci Bautista or a fully appointed studio.
I'm somewhere in between, but my physical space is taking a huge chunk of time away from creating. Admittedly, I should focus on one thing at a time, finish one project and move on to the next, but whether that is a self-sabotage or just the way I am. But I really do find it inspiring to move between house, jewelry, paper, fabric.
Do you have a project list?
Right now, in process, that I want to work on, I have:
A canvas for Aeryn's room...
She's 7, and this is a collaboration. Hopefully I will feel it's finished soon and put it up.
Be more Fabulous canvas - submit to CPS
Fuzzy picture, sorry. This is just the very 1st layout - it needs to be over the top, silly, fun, glittery goodness!
The blue velvet is only one option (all of which have to be from the fabrics I already own), the arm cushion needs to be re-attached. Oh, and there's a matching footstool.
Select and hang pictures for Art Wall
Freshly painted with my happy blue paint (mixed from Ethan's bedroom - bright blue- and Dylan's office - muted blue, with a touch of the stairwell - soft mint/moss green). Check out the 2010 Pantone colors! I think this is in between Turquoise and Amparo Blue.
Art Bead Scene January challenge
Monet "Magpie" Love this painting! Need to make a necklace inspired by it!
My primary problem is that my Painting table and my Sewing table are one and the same. So instead of shifting everything around again, I sit at my desk - which I am so NOT taking a picture of - and blog/bitch about it all.
Of course this isn't the whole project list, only the top priorities. So I need to pick one to do... first... right now...
Which will it be? Wait and see!
