Whelp, the truth is I didn’t get much done on the studio makeover challenge this week. The once clear table is not clear now. There is art stacking up on the floor. And on chairs and stools. And on the other table.
I was busy all week: helping plan a new local to Hillsboro, OR art group and finding a location for it, a quick trip to the coast, a handful of agates to sort, a trip to the book store to pick up a single book mysteriously took half a day, dithering over a new gallery application took half a day … oh and I played around in the studio, too — including the artful mapping piece.
Might be a time management issue, might be a lack of focus issue, might be a ooooooh-shiny-object issue? Or maybe I just don’t like organizing, it’s much more fun to putter. (I’m sure there is an applicable fable about the critter who puttered and the one who worked diligently. And how one starves to death and the other has a full belly all winter.)
Or, and I suspect this is the real reason: I am not sure what the next step should be. It’s a little overwhelming. Or is that just an excuse?
Does this sound familiar — What do you think?
Today, I can feel bad about not getting it done and avoid writing about what I didn’t do, or I can save that negative energy and apply myself to getting back on the horse. Let’s see if I can make up for lost time by next week.
Wish me luck, ‘cos apparently I need it!
Meanwhile, Jean Wilkey is refinishing walls (!) and Christine Martell is being all ingenious about hanging work in progress.
