Well, October has finally arrived! I’ve been anxious for it because it appears that I’ll be able to live life at a bit of slower pace. No art shows, the gallery shows are all hung on the wall, and no pressing deadlines for project. I even have a clean studio! September seemed to have each moment double-booked so I am anxious to slow down. Of course I’m also anxious to get that studio dirty and create again!
After a trip south in a few weeks ago I took a little side trip to a paper store. Oh, how I LOVE the paper stores! Something about being surrounded by all the lovely colors and textures is almost intoxicating. While I intended to control myself, the stack of papers that I selected grew quite tall. They were all so beautiful I took these pictures of them after I brought them home – creating collages and other art with them is going to be so much fun!
I have a tendency to be a bit of an art supply hoarder, so making myself use these instead of just keep them will be a nice step in breaking that habit. I also got a great deal on some canvases and large wood panels. Exactly what I’ll be making with them? No idea yet, but I can’t wait to find out. 🙂
I hope you are looking forward to a lovely month as well!
