If you've been a reader of my Pets To Posies blog, you'll know that I've gotten myself into this predicament before & I honestly don't realize it's happening until the studio is such a catastrophe that it takes a near miracle to get it back in order!
I think it happens because I tend to have several projects going on at one time and I think I'd do better if I did one thing at a time then cleaned up before starting something else. But sometimes that's just not feasible. It's the nature of paint to take a while to dry (unless it's acrylics which dry before you want them to! lol) and I just like to have something to keep me busy while waiting to go to the next step in a painting or project and I end up with stuff all over the place!
I'm really not this way when it comes to the rest of my life. When I worked in an office, my desk was usually as neat as a pin and my house stays pretty neat too (especially considering that I share it with someone who's not exactly a neatnic himself!) so I'm not sure how my studio gets to be soooo messy!
Well, I refuse to call this a real John Brown Mess in that I know it can be straightened out. However, it will take time, lots of time, so let me get to it!
