I enjoyed making this page. I hope you like it.
It's September and I am in cleaning mode, getting rid of stuff, in the house and in the studio. Do you have art stuff all over the house. Well I have a studio, then sometimes I don't want to go down to the studio, so I have stuff in the den, in cupboards, drawers its not a mess so I don't mind. But really do I need all the stuff, so much stuff I keep getting and not using. I see a demo on tulip paints, so out I go and get the tulip paints, do I use them, once. from now on am going by the slogan less is more. So today was purge day, junk was thrown out, good stuff was waiting for me to take to the goodwill. I basically did the studio about a month ago, and got rid of a bunch. Now its main floor arts, books, just stuff you don't use. I like to go by the slogan if I have not used it in a year, or thought of it then it goes. To much stuff crowds you and make you feel less creative. Now I have lots of images, and words, and backgrounds, and old stuff I have been saving, in containers that I cant part with, and its driving me crazy. I always think that If i throw that away, I will need the next day. I am not a crazy hoarder, so I am going to try and downsize that stash. I have a thing for paper, pens, inks. I see it and I want it. I am going to try to control these urges and not buy anything new till the end of the year and try to use what I have . What about you, do you have piles of stuff....?
