fall clean up and Vivaldi!

It was a mess! My studio was filled with boxes and stacks of boards and canvases and frames and I had less and less space for walking around and thinking. I guess thinking (for me) takes a lot of space! I had to do SOMETHING and fast before thinking stopped altogether! I bought a rolling canvas cart from Jerry's Artarama and moved a lot of the chaos of the studio into my garage. What a difference! (Only time will tell if the thinking will start up again!)

While I was cleaning out the stacks of stuff, I came across this unfinished painting. There's something going on with it that I really like, so I may work on it more and see if I can bring it up to a more finished place.

Fall is a good excuse to listen to Vivaldi's "Autumn," but I confess that there were snowflakes on my window as I drove home late last night. Sheesh. This is fall? Seems more like winter to me!

wow--that cart is great! Now I want one! I like the violinist too---I'll be interested to see what you do next with it. It's snowing like crazy on Mt Hood!

Snow here! No surprise, there, except it's a bit early.

I respond well to the violinist, too. I hope you finish her.

The rack is interesting! I am developing the need for that, and may tear out some kitchen cabinets in the studio to build one. I am a studio furniture junkie.

I like the violinist and the cool cart a lot.
Vivaldi fits both and also makes lively clean up music.
