"The Zen of Messy" Challenge

Inspired by the photos on the bog of  Richard Jesse Watson ( a wonderful author/illustrator and a very nice man) studio- in what he thinks is a messy state- I am posting the "after the storm" picture of my studio- i.e.- I just finished a big project and have not cleaned up- as much as any artist cleans up- but I do like to ceremonially straighten things up before starting my next project.

note the little scrappy on the floor, the stacks of fabric and the lack of usable space on the tables- yup- it is the end of a project! I am not even going to turn around and show you the other side- that would show cardboard boxes waiting for me to organize my family photos- yikes!!

  1. Julia, i like your bright warm studio. Although I don't think it looks so messy. I like your remarkable assortment of colored thread. Can't wait to see what you were working on. I know what you mean about "after the storm". There is such a peace and lightness of being when a piece of art is finally finished, especially after big push or series.
