This is my shiny fresh new start for the new year: a new home for my blog, and a clean and tidy studio. Not to whine about it too much, but Blogger has fewer capabilities, is harder to use, and goes down a lot. ‘Nuff said about that. And as for my studio, well, you should have seen it before.
One of the best ways to start a year is to make your workspace more efficient and, well, tidier. Critical mass had been reached, I had a small square of clear space around my feet and cascading piles of paper, paints and junk everywhere. The day before New Year’s Eve was spent clearing out the flotsam, getting rid of a piece of equipment (a lucigraph) that was taking up too much real estate, dumping the remains of an old project, and rearranging the furniture. The results are energizing, refreshing and a studio I can’t wait to come into every day and get to work in. Big overhaul once a year: highly recommended.
