Summer Art Camp

These last three weeks I have been playing in Carla Sonheim's online Summer Art Camp. Immersed in creativity, inspiration, ideas, exercises, amazing teachers and fellow artists. Sheer, wonderful fun! It has awakened the part of me that has been laying dormant as I slowly re-learn how to regain my life in a healthier, more balanced way.

Not only am I looking at the world through wide-open artist's eyes again, my mind is brimming with new ideas, enthusiastically embracing new art forms and best of all, gradually bringing order to the chaos that my loft studio has degenerated into since it was abandoned last winter.

I am organising in a completely different way now. Gone are the days where everything has to be in sight. Everything is being sorted and housed away, labelled for easy access. Surfaces are being cleared completely so that I can begin any project, in any medium at a moment's notice. Boxes are being brought out of storage and used for specific purposes. I picked up two old metal tackle boxes yesterday, one at least to be repainted and requisitioned for art supplies, the other for sewing tools and accessories.

I can't wait to share with you what comes out of this space, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually...
