So you've always dreamed of being an artist, and having all the supplies necessary to accomplish everything you can dream up in you imagination...Be sure to include a BIG 30,000 square foot industrial building or even larger into your dream. It must have clean space for office and computer work,a large framing and matting room, and another room for painting watercolors. It must have a well lit room with good natural light and long walls for mural painting, oil painting, acrylic painting and tile floors that are easy to clean. Then you need rooms devoted to stained glass, etched glass, your Kilns for doing slumped and fused glass, and of course a separate building for doing the sandblasted etched glass. You need flat files for storing finished or uncompleted art work. Storage space for all of your watercolor pads,Bristol Pads, Charcoal Paper, mat boards, frames, oil paints, alkyds, watercolors, charcoal pencils, graphite pencils, colored pencils, ink, printing ink, canvas, pen nibs, rulers, templates, and office supplies. You will also need storage space for all the finished art work.
Now why do I bring this up you ask...because I am trying to clean my studio so I can now paint on Needlepoint canvases and translate watercolor paintings, oil paintings, and other art work into Needlepoint designs. My house and studio can no longer accommodate me and all my dreams and aspirations. This is nothing new I always outgrow my work space, but adding Needlepoint yarn, canvas, etc into the equation is stretching the limits of my patience. I am cleaning shelves, putting tablets away, keeping out finished art work where necessary, and throwing stuff away. Somebody say a prayer for me so I don't get crushed under an avalanche of art work, tablets, and paint. Or trip and fall. That said I will soon be painting on a clean table, and I appreciate this venue that allows me to let off steam and vent. Thank you kind friends, and beware of what you wish for...or...just include a very LARGE Spacious building in your dreams. Thank you for being there and listening...Hugs to my dearest...You know who you are!
