There's been a lot of cleansing and cleaning happening this weekend. Planning for Open Studios at the end of May has intersected with a happy state of self reflection. Everything needed to create good art is here - in the physical and every other sense. It really is time and never too late to become mindful - and make good art - or the best art possible. A clear focus on content and an uncluttered space to create is my most pressing need to explore emerging and persistent ideas. Making room to play within the boundaries I set means digging deep and letting go ... of my accumulated "stuff". So ... all the "stuff" that is taking up the physical and mental space I need to create is being cleared out, donated, sold, gifted or relocated to the rubbish tip. That which remains has been sorted, remembered, deliberated over and retained - for all the right reasons.
