Getting ready for Portland Open Studios this October.
These were gathered on my walk the other day.


Begin Again

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

So, every time I start a new project I go through a ritual of cleaning my studio.
It serves many purposes: it lets me start my new series in a nice clean studio. I review old work. I find new inspirations in files & folders. I clean out boxes & drawers. I procrastinate starting. I mull over what my new work will be – before actually starting, while I’m not directly thinking about it.

It’s a mental & physical sorting.
Stirring up ideas & memories.
& as my studio gets close to being as tidy as I can possibly make it (which is not very tidy to outside eyes, or tidy people) that is the point when I get a little anxious.

Because then comes the time to jump in & begin again.
I am very close to jumping into the new.

Wish me luck.

Happy Spring.

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable tasks, and then starting on the first one.”
