Studio Intervention & Trippin
My People,My People;
How the hell are ya? I am alive and kicking here at Casa De Sanctuary and Alteredanything Studio...So i owe u all a few posts,lets get at it....The last post i am whining about a suggestion given to me by a friend of clean and organizing my studio as it would help...Well at that time i thought this friend had completely lost it. As i tell people to remain open this was a time when i needed to take my own advice, keep my mouth shut and go with the flow.
Goddess love my friend Megan,she truly has been a huge support to me and us Artists need that well i know i do. Megan,Pam(Megan;s sister) & Chris showed up on a Friday evening with dinner,drinks and loads of energy. I was a bundle of nerves cause i had things organized in the studio that worked for me and people were going to be moving and changing stuff up,truly i was so wrong. After Dinner we all stepped into the studio the music was put on and each of us took up a position and dived in...my things were everywhere and nowhere it was a blur..four hours later as i looked around there was a difference...yes things had a places to live,there were open spaces..temp shelves were in place and the biggest difference were my work tables..For the past six months i have not seen the tops of my tables. Behold i could walk around the table and see clear space all around.I welled up with emotion or maybe it was the paralyzer.
The studio had a rebirth my heart soared and what weight i carried around these last months was gone. Truly i had a an attitude adjustment. There were so many memories of that intervention that i will carry with me and talk about as it truly made a difference in my creative life. One of the fun things that we did that night was to do a random changing installation on one of the tables adding bits and odds here and there( i will post pics of those later) no analyzing as to how and why of these sculptures..WE JUST DID IT.. Thank You Megan,Pam & Chris!!!! U womyn rock
I gotta tell ya now weeks later,i love my clean,organized studio..Creatively i am on fire cause i am clear inside and out.not to mention organized.
Days later after Studio Intervention..i took some time out and away with another gal pal Jody..we were off to Powell River..we had fun especially since the weather was in our favor..i love being on the ferry and Jody& I caught up on the beautiful drive and ferry's.. We saw our gal pal Nancy who resides in Powell River...it was a whirlwind visit but much needed...its always a pleasure to hang out with friends..
Well this is a long overdue quick to the point post..coming up are new pieces in progress and coming to finish on many of these pieces. Its hard to believe that my time is almost up here in the outback of Harrison Hot Springs. However for today i am enjoying each and every moment that i creatively have here.
Just a shout out to all that take the time to read my ramblings...Thanx So Much...U all also make a difference in my life....
