Available wall space is always a rarity at my house - I tend to live in houses that are longer on charm than space, and I'm a bit of a collector. So I've had a blank space crying out to me over one of my kitchen windows since we moved last year, but just hadn't been able to commit to anything. Then a month or so ago I found an old wooden I don't even know what - drawer of some kind? It's completely crooked in every way though so it's hard to imagine - part of it's mystery I guess! I'm charmed by misfits and the general size was right so I brought it home and have been eyeing it ever since, trying to decide what to do with it.
I decided over the weekend to stop being so commitment phobic and just DO something with it, so I started playing, in the process pulling out half the contents of my studio. A lot of this can be moved around or taken out, so I didn't completely conquer my commitment issues, but some of it is there to stay, unless I were to do some SERIOUS sanding.
It was a good break from the portrait work I've been doing, and really fun to get back to one of my great loves, mixed media assemblage.
