As a mixed media artist, I see what things can be...I want to help that happen and show myself and others what is or can be in an ordinary object. This can add so many "special bits and bobs" to the creative space and mind.
Add to that the collections of my life and the inheritance from loved ones and the LOVED objects start to crowd around me. I have begun tackling this job. I have enjoyed hunting and gathering and can remember where each special item was found....OK that is not the theme of this blog but I had to say all of that.
I enjoy a tidy space...a vision of my home with it's FULL but carefully chosen themes...editing is at hand but the big dilemma is....if I tidy and put my "bits" away ....after they are culled and cleared, will I forget them and become less creative? Cleaning my workspace now is a bit like Christmas or shopping as I rediscover!!!! Where I create is everywhere...on many surfaces and when the juices are flowing on more than one project.
Now the question to all who may read this....shall I hide my things for the sake of tidiness? Help me decide!
Lastly, I would like to thank my dear husband and family for having dinners under "challenging" often messy circumstances...after all you are living with and loving an ARTIST!
