"Once we clearly acknowledge the soul, we can learn to hear it's cries. - Dallas Willard, Renovation Of The Heart."

It takes courage to pursue our dreams. It takes time and patience to unearth buried treasure. But I believe with all my heart that we must do both.


cleaning studio...

but i think i just don't have room for all the stuff!!  

seems like every time i clean or re-organize my studio things have multiplied!!  

does anyone else find that to be true? 

 i really don't remember putting much more in it...in fact, i have removed some stuff!!  

oh, i can't remember if i ever posted a photo of this wonderful worktable my son made for me!

playing around with stencils and spray paint on a large board in my studio

Hi Mary, yes I know what you mean about the 'stuff' I recently cleaned and re-organized my studio, too and added another 10 drawer rolling cart, I'm addicted to them! That worktable is awesome!

Bren said...

What is it about maintaining a studio that such a challenge! It's the challenge of containing it all but having it easily accessible too. Love that new table, you will get lots of milage out of it. Great new piece, very retro :-)

Valerie said...

Oh I totally know what you mean. And your posting of this is so timely! I just got back from a week away and it is studio clean-up time. Thanks for the motivation, in words and beautiful images of your studio! It's lovely!

First off you studio is amazing LARGE!! I love that for you. I have a cozy out studio that I move inside to the spareroom in the winter. I too have recently orginized mine and I'm so glad I did. There are something I cannot find and out of of sight out of mind is my biggest challenge.

I just wanted to say thinking about you but when I got on your blog..I got some warning about some blocked virus things..You might want to check your site..Me I am clueless about all that but my program just showed me... When you get time send me a email..I have a couple of questions about starting a art ministry.. I luv you big hugs.
