It has been way too long since I’ve stepped foot in my art room. I have been working in my sketchbooks, but just haven’t been able to do anything more concrete. I know there are those who would say sketching is productive, and it surely is. And I have been creative in other ways-cooking, gardening, photographing, crocheting a couple of hats and scarves and pin-y sort of things.
One reason I’ve avoided the art room is the mess it’s become and my lack of desire to straighten it up. It’s just the way I work-I’m not neat. Once I did a bit of tidying up, I was more inspired to do some painting and collage. Heaven knows I have enough art supplies, old books, little scraps and ephemera to keep me busy forever! Here’s a glimpse of different areas of the room and the drawers of STUFF I like to use in collage.
The piece below was actually done awhile ago, but I rediscovered it when I went through my folders. What other surprises are hidden in here?
