Is it too early for Spring Cleaning? Maybe it’s too much work, or I can’t move in my studio, maybe it’s the return of the birds, out there singing all day. I can’t stop. I just filled two bags in my greenhouse. It needs a good washing, but it’s too late in the day for that, still it looks wonderful, cleaned out, organized, old plants dried up in their pots removed. A quick hit with the hose then it’ll be ready to start some seeds in a month. Usually the cleaning is part of the planting, each year promising to do it a month before. Maybe this will be a start of a good thing.
Earlier, in one of the art rooms began just putting things away. Hours! I start working on a project and every box, drawer, bottle, cabinet is open, supplies everywhere. It’s just how I work. Magazines show photos of beautiful work space, do they actually work in them or are they staged for the photo? I have beautiful things all over the room, but that’s just it, all over the room. When I’m creating I get inspired by stuff! I’ll see a piece of velvet ribbon or a broken bisque arm, then know it belongs, if it weren’t in sight it wouldn’t have been added. So perfect for the application, it was on view for a reason. After all the time I spent in there today I completed half a closet . Look at the pictures, my clean is still a mess. This is how I work the best. My brain runs too fast for everything in neat rows or labeled boxes. Too many ideas and never the time to execute them. I have journals full of ideas for the day I have time.
