Last week I talked briefly about being out of the studio due to some extra work that I picked up. The above photo shows me after a very long and dirty day in the sun digging tree stumps, removing brush and pulling weeds.
I have always enjoyed physical work for more than one reason. Even though it can be extremely difficult, it also tends to be repetitive. Once I get into the rhythm of the job, I can let my mind wander to someplace completely different. This is when some of my best thinking and creative ponderings have happened. All in all, I would rather be in the studio with the brushes, but I can’t complain for the opportunity to do something different.
I’ve only been in the studio one day this week, but I was able to start on some new projects. The painted table that I showed all of you two posts ago was delivered this past weekend, so I am now able to focus on what I want to work on next.
I worked on a new 5″ x5″ design and started on a round canvas that I have been holding onto for some time. I also have 5 new wood panels that I have been prepping before painting. They will be my next area of focus.
In the middle of all these projects and other work, I have managed to keep up with my guest writing for the Zatista Wall Spin blog. It’s something that I enjoy doing, and it allows me to step away from my own blog to talk about subjects that I wouldn’t normally expand on. On top of that, it puts a few dollars into my pocket, which is a good thing!
This time around, I talk about Cape Cod, which I have the privilege of living near. Please check it out here.
Next week, I will have some exciting things to announce. I have already left you a clue in the above photos. Remember the game “Which One Does Not Belong?” See if you can spot it.
Until then, thank you for your visit here. As always, I always post studio photos during the week over at my Facebook Fan Page, so if you don’t follow, please do.
Have a great weekend, all!
