THANK YOU for all the interest in the minis. I'll be making more. Right now I'm finishing a large threadpainting for the Boutique. I'm back and forth between the old studio and the new. So look! Here is the blocked off dining room where I create, and have created for three years.
|Though it has no walls, it is a good space.|
That doll: I love her. She keeps me sane. She's magically relaxing. She turns slowly and spreads creative calm around the room while I sit is creative clutter. It's piling as I refuse to clean until I have a new place to put everything. It's good incentive.
Downstairs, I have been mudding and sanding, mudding and sanding, mudding...
I am falling in love with this process!! There's something amazing about building your own she-cave. I smoooth over the cracks with mud. Later, I sand it smooth with my right hand while I feel for imperfections with my left. It is beautiful. I love building my personal space and feeling every inch of the walls with so much intention and focus.
It's been forever since I felt so connected to a physical space. Maybe it's because there are five of us. Nothing is sacred. Everything is shared.
It's quite strange to cultivate an affection for drywall. It is somewhere to hand my art.
I am linking up to WIP Wednesday (Work In Progress) at The Needle and Thread Network. Have a great week!
