Back to Life
The mind is willing but the body is not quite there yet. I've been yearning to get into my studio and paint. I'm still not up to it but I know it's coming. I've been buying things thinking I will do something with them.
First I dropped into a thrift store and came out with these ceramic bunnies. What the heck am I going to do with those? Yesterday I went out to the art supply store and Michaels (the biggest supplier of craft crack). I bought glass Mason jars, glitter, small canvas' and even a rubber stamp. These have all been impulse buys! The last time I bought a stamp was 15 years ago.
Really, I have no clue what I'm doing with this stuff. I'm a bit like a crow, I like shiny things. Unfortunately I don't have a job, or any money. Oops.
This morning I dared to enter the studio and tried to make myself at home. My favorite orange chair seems a bit like a cold stranger. I've spent a lot of happy hours here.
I know I will again.
The state of my work table is a bit chaotic but I did do a little mucking around. I'm pretty excited about what I'm doing.
It's a start.
