My studio was in tip top shape just a few weeks ago and while I love a clean and organized space, I also feel inspired by a messy studio. Every morning I wake up and turn on Pandora and get to work, or should I say play. Inspiration comes and goes as most people know. Right now, I intend to embrace the chaos in my studio and let go of all that stuff in my head and turn it lose on the pages of my art journal. I started one of these a few years ago and felt like I didn't know what I was doing and quit. I finally get it, there are no rules. It's just a matter of putting your feeling down and letting go. I have to say, I have not felt so free.
I don't have to spend hours trying to decide what paint to use, or how to draw a straight line, or where the shading needs to go, and the best part is freeing my thoughts after I finish. I hope that all this inspiration decides to stay a while, maybe even move in permanently just as long as I can keep up with all my mommy duties at the same time.
Speaking of which, it's time to run my girls to 4H, so until next time.
