Now that I have a large body of work sitting around, along with a multitude of equipment and supplies, the importance of keeping my work and space in order has increased hugely. So today was another reminder of this principle. I must reming myself often that having an organized workspace...
- saves time in the long run. No more searching for things.
- makes me feel serene, relaxed, and in control.
- gives me perspective about my work- what has been accomplished, what needs doing, etc.
- make it easier to call things into play, access work to show someone, etc.
- gives me room to spread out a larger project or series I am working on and this allows me to see it as a whole.
- motivates me!
Here's today's homework:

Getting Organized Session: I have a good system for my digital art files but the actual supplies, paintings, work waiting to dry, etc. are in disarray in my too small studio.
