Which old tree? The Christmas tree:)!
Okay, if you haven’t read my latest newsletter, that statement will not make any sense at all, so get your butt over here and catch up on what’s been going on—not that it will make sense after you read it, but at least you will know of whence I speak:))
I actually must read it myself just so I will know I what I am up too….I forget things pretty easily these days.
Could it be because I have single handedly drug out 14 projects upon myself at the same time????
That’s what spring fever does to one. It all sounds so good when the planning(and the only movement) is happening between the ears.
Many miles of CHAOS later, however….reality begins to set in:))
New wood floor down in studio.
New mirrored table serving double duty as a palette AND a place for Eddie to admire himself.
Shelves cleared in anticipation of new goodies, including these handsome containers given to me by Kathleen O’Neil Stevenson at my last workshop (don’t you LOVE them!!!)
Easel and old jewelry chest waiting to be painted in shabby chic fashion.
Then reality sets in about now….
392 plastic tubs filled with all the stuff I pulled out of my studio that are now in the overstuffed storage area that must be reclaimed or else I turn up on the next edition of HOARDERS.
Tubes of paint now laying in floor because I needed the table for something else.
Not too mention I decided it was high time to get started combining my blog and website into one wonderful home AND decided (after trying some of Kathleen’s Stevens colors while in Carmel) to order up a bunch of Holbein water based oil paints to try out AND AND ….WHAT IN THE HECK WAS I THINKING?????
You owe it to me the next time you hear me slinging around words like spring and fever—-for pity’s sake—-do an INTERVENTION!!!
Well, for now, I can just close the door on it all.
I start my Lexington Workshop in the morning.
I can hang out with great artists, go to lunch, paint, laugh and totally forget about the potential hoarder’s episode looming at home.
All is well.
At least ’til next week;)))
