Starting over with a clean sheet and a tidy studio.......

OK - so did you have a New Year Resolution to tidy up, clean up your studio, declutter, give away everything you don't use and generally recycle your way back to creativity - and some space to put the results?

If so then you might like to try reading:
Anyway, this post is by way of announcing I forgot to say that one of my goals for 2008 is to CLEAR OUT AND CLEAN UP - despite what I said about housework in the last post. This is important - I want to be able to put all my books away so I can find them again!

In the meantime, the sketch is of the view of the dome of St Paul's Cathedral from the Friends Room at Tate Modern - my backlog of sketches will be posted to my other blog "Travels with a Sketchbook" over the next few days.

Now - back to the clear out. I'm just pondering whether to order a crane and a skip! ;)

PS - My Design and Composition project starts on Monday..........

PPS Blogger isn't uploading images for me at the moment so I used Flickr - which seems to want to compress them! I'll remedy when Blogger starts to behave again. I do wish they'd get their slow/remote server problems sorted!!! (Now sorted and the dome of St Paul's is back to normal!)


  1. Katherine--

    Happy new year. I continue to enjoy your sites. In fact, I have to learn to NOT get bogged down on them because there is so much information. Happy blogging in 2008.

  2. Hi Katherine, thank you for the mention of my tidy studio! It's getting its inaugural workout today, so we'll see how long it stays tidy! Did you see that you and I made the top 8 must-read art blogs for 2008 on Empty Easel?? Check out my blog for details.
    I'm looking forward to checking in on a daily basis in 2008!

  3. I meant to say "checking in here on a daily basis" if you want to change that in my message.

  4. guess I will have to photo my small studio space. Hanging with all 32 plus pieces of artwork. I started cleaning up in November for this year 2008.

    Thanks for all the inspirations.
