space issues

Yesterday I was looking for my black gesso and not finding it in the right spot was driving me nuts!    Perhaps I need to explain that to find anything in my office, something else has to be moved.  It’s not that I don’t have shelves and drawers etc, it’s just that it is only an office. It’s about 4.3 square metres of strange shaped, not enough room to swing a cat, even my dog sleeps out in the hall and won’t take her changes by my side, could barely fit a single bed in it, office.  And although everything has a place and I periodically put things back, not much has to be out of place for it to be a complete and utter shambles.

This morning I awoke knowing where it would be and found the gesso but only AFTER I had moved on to another project, got my sewing machine out and no longer needed it. I guess there’s always today but . . . my sewing machine is still out using all the available space!

Yeah, yeah, I could take over the rest of the house but the place gets so disorganised and I can’t function in a mess.  Maybe if I just did one thing instead of dabbling here and there?  No, I’d be bored by the end of the first week.  What I need is a studio with space to be able to leave out my three or four current works in progress.

And talking of works in progress . . .

A work in progress . . . exploring options.

Making mesh, a work in progress . . . exploring options.

Making mesh detail . . . unfinished and full of promise.

Making mesh detail . . . unfinished and full of promise.

And next time I lose something?  Perhaps I should just go and take a nap.
