My husband is away. The kids are at school. I have become the mad woman….
We are no longer eating at the dining table as I have one, maybe two paintings in progress.
The kitchen counter is off limits too. Some paper cutting and collage going on here..oh, and my computer just in case I get the sudden urge to blog.
My paintbrush photo-shoot because it is oh, so important to have a pretty header. Look up!
Now, really, who could get anything done in here? Much to messy and way too many distractions!
Ar-tis-tic Af-flic-tion v. to have great distress caused by an overactive imagination.
And finally….painting the walls too.Why not??
I may be Terminal.
I see you have a lot going on, which is fantastic… but you will see I am no better, because instead of seeing a mess, all I can think is how beautiful your house is! What beautiful HUGE walls! You are lucky to be able to trust your things around the house. My stuff would be destroyed if I weren’t about to shut it in its own room! Just go with it while you can!
lol..I was sitting on the floor when I took that picture! My kids are good around my stuff…my dog is another story:)
Elissa – I really like your flags. Great, and very original idea!
i think I may have this affliction too…
HA, HA!!! I thought I just had General Anxiety Disorder! You made me realize I am just a normal Creative! Thanks you, Julie.
I love that you have a studio yet like me why not use the kitchen table, kitchen counter, an island and a bit of the piano bench in addition to that creative studio space! Thank God I am not crazy all by myself. Nice to have friends with similar disorders. Husband away tomorrow lets see if I can make a bigger creative mess! Thanks for sharing. Love the Noguchi table btw.
How is the sketchbook going? Still on the fence.
My house is the same right now, hubby is away, and my last little chick just flew, I cannot seem to focus on any one thing, I have a magpie mind and keep making messes wherever I go…I love your home and studio, all so colorful and warm. Thanks for sharing!
I love it…that’s what my house looks like when my hubby goes away – just sent him off today for 10 days and the art shop is out of canvases…..boohoohooo…..will have to do some other sort of art/craft…..like right now I should be cooking dinner….meh….we are having an easy dinner…ravioli…well, you have fun!!!
Oh..have fun while he is gone!! No canvas…now you have to early get creative! Limited art supplies here too.. I have started using rolls of Borden & Riley sketch vellum…you can do anything to it( just gesso it first) It comes in rolls of 48″ by 20yds and can be attached to canvas after with medium.. I rub, scrub,etch.collage..you name it.
Breakfast time over here…just having a title quiet time with coffee and my trusty friend, mac.
I puffy heart this — you are in my head and a less cleaner, more put together house! Where do I sign up for the support group? 🙂 Happy creating!!! xox
oh, my!!! i love, love the definition of artistic affliction!!!!
Your place is wonderful. It is full of beauty. Not terminal, but very long lasting!!
I think THAT is what I am going to call my facebook page!
I love this blog post! I have trouble containing my art mess to one room also! And if the kitchen table 7 counters are covered in art stuff, that’s a great excuse to eat out!
Haha…thats what my kids say too. Frantically trying to clean it all up as husband home tomorrow and until I actually start making a dime with this mess….:)
No place is safe when there is an artist in the house! Love this.
Brilliant! So lovely to see all the colours and creativity and gorgeous chaos flying around 🙂
Julie – Fellow flyer here – I couldn’t find a link to your direct email. Wanted to let you know I posted a link to your blog on mine and featured your studio space on my creative spaces http://3wishesstudio.wordpress.com/creative-spaces/ – because I think it is a lovely space, even if you are currently working on your floor – I so understand! Best, Kim
