It was never this bad when I did simple acrylic painting, but the moment I discovered mixed media, look out! not a single piece of paper gets thrown out now, as well as anything that may be added to a painting. I've heard this from other mixed media artists, lol! I'm sure we all peel glue off our fingers every night before bed.
Another thing I'd like to get to is actually making my small art room feel more like a creative space. Maybe some nice Christmas lights hung on the window, and a tealight holder to keep on the desk I work on. This is supposed to be a creative area, and it looks anything but. It amazes me I can work in such a cluttered area, but right now, it's the only space I have. I do know artists who work on a kitchen table, and they manage just fine. We got to make the best of what we have, and work around the limitations. You somehow focus on the work at hand, but I'm tired of not being able to find what I need due to clutter. This sounds like a good project for this long weekend.
What are your plans this weekend?
