Warning. This post contains graphic photos! Seriously scary. Especially for my neat and organized friends. But this is what happens to your studio when you are away from home more than you are home and when you choose to paint over cleaning.
Oh, I would tidy up every day. I am fortunate to have two spare rooms next to my studio. These became giant junk drawers. But after awhile the mess builds until there is no where else to put it all. The junk drawer was full! So I decided to devote the month of December to purge and organize. It is a bit overwhelming so I thought I'd share the process with you.

Yesterday we set to work and cleared everything out of the room which I will now dub the Studio Annex. We piled everything up outside so my husband and I could sort the piles....trash, Goodwill, sister who still does Ebay, kids stuff, art stuff.... Heidi didn't seem to mind the mess. She managed to find her bed under a pile of stuff. She actually seemed bored with it all.

Today I worked on this consolidation goal. I have made good solid progress and I will share my new system tomorrow. I have also found some more UFO's. Today's marsh painting was wrapped and hidden. I always liked this one so it was fun to find it!
|Ahhhh Much better! Not perfect but on it's way!|
|Remnants of the Wildwood Room....newly unearthed.|
|Better. At least I can walk to the back of the room.|
Back to work! Come back tomorrow to see more progress!
