I so wish I had a camera so I could publish the color of my studio. The painting is now done; finished the last wall today. The color is refreshing. That's the best word to describe it. The room now feels fresh and alive and happy. The color is called Teal Ice. But I would have named it Fresh Aqua. (not to be confused with the toothpaste!)
I still have much, much work to do in culling, sorting, re-organizing. But now that the background of the canvas is complete, so to speak, I feel motivated to make everything I put back, look inviting and clean. Amvets is coming Thursday, and I have a lot to donate. I also have a LOT of more artsy stuff, like paints & stamps, to donate to an art teacher. Hopefully, I'll find someone who wants it all.
One problem I've run across as I go through all this stuff, is the fact that I never use some of this stuff (like game pieces, for instance.) So the question is: Did I not use them because I forgot I had them? Or will I never really use them, so just toss them? So far, I'm going with the latter.
