This week I’m tackling my storage closet in the studio. I need to lend my easels to the Autumn Paint Out committee for the event. The easel was in the back of the closet and there are tons of frames, paintings ,tools and endless other items shoved in front of it. As nice as my studio is, it is too small. I am a pack rat when it comes to art supplies and frames.
I decided to get rid of a lot of old frames, and some that were odd sized. I will probably burn some failed paintings too while I’m at it. This is one of the projects that you dread, because it takes days to do. It messes up the studio and you wonder what to do with half of the items you pull out. I had put this off for over a year, so getting the easel out forced me to do it. I may as well do it right.
Next week I’ll be driving artists around at Fair Oaks in Evinston for a week for my volunteer job. I hope to see you there.
