Need to do a happy dance to the rain goddess she visited us today>
It is becoming obvious that i only write my blog for our Wednesday gathering. that is because life online seems to be taking over. Last week was a hectic week of "Life Intrudes"; meaning there were so many things that had to be done beyond my work area/studio that I felt overwhelmed. It was of no help that i had friends over for wine and cheese Saturday and that meant shopping and of course i over did the food. As a result this week is leftovers. The cheese was the instigator of this happening as it was cheese from Penny royal the dairy in Boonville CA we visited. I suddenly had a horrible thought that since this was artisan cheese it would not keep. It was a good decision. Then I added other finger food to avoid anyone dying of hunger. Went crazy over fruit, breads crackers and simply fabulous dried french sausages and jams and relishes and.....I even made chocolate mousse. As a result I spent Sunday and through today, Tuesday, catching up on my journals. That done I now have cleanup of my mess. This brings me to this post I have to reveal my mess because today is "What's On Your Workspace Wednesday". This is like a weekly visit to a strip club where rather than our bodies(aren't you lucky)we lay bare are work areas. Here is mine today;that is provided drop box and the other floating menace icloud have synced them to my PC.
It worked a modern miracle. Not quite a simple as in the olden days when a laying of hands had the blind seeing and the legless walking, this required a fiddling round with files. The "Where did they go?" daily mystery.
This is my "art desk" ideal for drawing, painting as the light is perfect, not so for photos. The trees out of the window are Ashe Junipers, a junk tree, but for me I am just happy to have anything that grows on the limestone.
The three images to the right are for journal 52.
This is the work space in the middle of the room, a sort earthly "dropbox". tomorrow I will have to clean up as essential tools are missing. I also want to visit as many desks as possible to see some of the great works being created around the world and to check out all those gorgeous British cats.
