I always take time at the beginning of a year to clean the studio, rearrange furniture, and purge art supplies I rarely or never use. It gives me a fresh start and mental space to create in the new year.
Sometimes I have tried out a new technique with tools that just don’t work out for me, or I realize that I don’t want to go in that direction. Today’s finds that will be donated to my favorite art organization include several sets of multicolored pens and markers. These are items I have tried out and evaluated, and they just don’t make the cut.
I also THROW OUT old pens, markers, tubes of paint, and anything else that only kind of works or is on its last legs. Tossing stuff is a struggle for any pack rat, and I think it’s particularly difficult when it’s an artistic pack rat.
How are you beginning this new year?
Be safe everybody.
