my art, my studio, my life as an artist .........
Oh wow, that looks neat compared to mine. What's the problem?
Hey Jo....I don't work well in clutter......do you?
Cleaning up around here, too, after shuffling furniture around over the weekend. Glad that you are feeling better!
Lorrie, shuffling furniture brings out the dust bunnies that hide under couches and dressers! Did you capture them again?
you are funny Carole! happy cleaning :) xo sandra
Thanks Sandra. So far I've made a bit more of a mess but it's all in the name of cleaning! xo
After all day at the MMDJ I am finally sinking into my chair with a cuppa mint tea, a stroll through Blogland and a relaxing daily drawing session before falling into bed. Good luck with your clean-up. I gotta do the same here soon. xxoo, sus
Well Sus, I got a bit done and then got distracted by my brown bags and ancient sewing machine! I hope your cleaning goes more smoothly! xo Carole
Hi, Carole. If I had to deal with paint, my studio would look like a hurricane hit it. Yours--before the cleaning-- looks impeccable by my standards. Fabric and thread are bad enough to keep in order. Yesterday, I picked tangerines and grapefruit for market...today I get to sit in bed and stitch--forget the cleaning!best, nadiaPS really enjoyed your self-portrait post. I can't seem to do self-portraits, can't see myself. You've got me reflecting.
Nadia, thread and pins have a funny way of spreading from one room to the next! Have fun stitching....in bed...no less! How wonderful. Maybe you could stitch a self-portrait?
I did a little cleaning up too...just so I could have a clean space to work and make messy again!
Isn't that the way, Amy!
Oh have fun then! I have been keeping my studio as clean as I can since we are still in the process of trying to sell the house!;-)
Yikes, keeping the house clean for those house tours is hard work, Annamaria!
when you are finished in your studio, come by mine! I'll help you!
Maybe that's what we should do after every project!
Ah, well Carole. Its cleaner than my office. Gulp... I have my spring cleaning to look forward to I can see. Hope you are well and spring is finding you near cherry blossoms! ME
Hello Mark. I too hope you are near cherry blossoms! None in my yard but I saw some in Tofino last weekend.
I had every intention of cleaning up my studio today and even dreamed last night of the bags of stuff I would donate to the garbage pick up! Alas, it was way more fun to push paint around. Your place is not so bad; relatively organized.I do recognize the waiting sink...the scrubbing reqired, and the eventual relapse!
Hi Marie. Cleaning that sink is almost impossible now. It's over 50 yrs old! I hope your dream comes true for you. :)

Wow, that's a long drive for you Patrice! I'm sure it was worth it!!!! xo Carole
It must be going around. I'm on a tear to streamline the house and studio too. Every room is suspect, but working on shop and studio first. Until I walk through the other rooms to get something...
Hi Robing, starting on the studio and shop is probably a really good idea. Too often we artists get distracted by housework and forget our favourite place!
oh, oh, I have to do the same things. my studio is a little chaos!! :))mano
Hi Mano, here's to you winning over the chaos! :)
I just straightened my room up Sunday morning and it caused a flood of creativity. It's already a mess again though. I love seeing your space!
Studios don't stay tidy for very long before it's time to mess them up again! Glad you went with the flood, Lisa.
Ha! Looks bloody tidy to me ;-))
You should see just how tidy it is now, Suzie! :)
