Today was spent preparing for a lecture and demonstration that I will be giving this weekend at the local library. I have large canvas to paint, samples to sew and kits to assemble. As I have mentioned before, I have to paint outside because of my messy habits and knack for spilling paint on carpet- so my day was spent outside surrounded by green grass, wind through the trees and the sound of the ocean. Peaceful- YES- but I think it was after I spilled paint on my parent's deck (shhhh..I got it out before anyone saw!) and when my canvas blew away in the wind, that for a brief moment I really started missing my studio space!
