I started moving in to the studio. I have some inexpensive cabinets being out together at Lowe's and will pick up on Wed. Right now I just have piles of boxes shoved under a table.
I hereby swear that I will glue down a significant portion of paper that I have held onto and dragged across town, and I will keep gluing until I have a manageable pile! Lordy, I've got alot of paper! Now I need to do something with it.
I am also going into the basement where I have quite a few boxes that I have not opened and I am not sure what supplies they might contain. I suspect quite a few rubber stamps.
I need to paint. I have not touched my collage materials in any significant way, all summer.
I did take an oil painting class with Wilson Bickford. Doesn't that sound like a painter you would see on PBS? It was great fun. I have not done oils since college (soooooo long ago) and it was fun to paint with a group and Wilson was very encouraging and had a nice sense of humor.
I learned two new techniques! That was worth the price of the class in itself, but really, I just wanted to paint! I have been stuck without the time and room for so long- I felt like I was going to pop.
And now that I have been going through my supplies, I am itching to get in and play. I want to coptic bind a book. I have been watching videos on the subject and I think I can do it.
