One of my favorite things about having a designated studio space is that I can make a mess and leave it. I'm quite particular about things being put back in their place once they've been used and yet that doesn't necessarily happen in my studio. There is something so beautiful to me about a creative mess...especially when it involves glorious paint. I love looking at work in progress and spreading out on the table and floor. It triggers ideas and often solutions to problems suddenly present themselves.
I've been working on a few larger canvases but they have been a struggle of late. Along with feeling under the weather for awhile I felt I was getting nowhere so I decided to change it up and work smaller once again. I am always amazed how that resolves so many things for me. That and looking at art supplies as I question my medium of choice...should I try oil again? how about watercolour? maybe a different acrylic? or maybe jewellery design....again? And yet when I just reduce the size of my canvas, I don't need anything else as I become inspired and motivated all over again. It really is a miracle cure.
