Clear Desk // Clear Mind

October 8, 2015

It’s been a while since I’ve spent a quiet morning playing in my studio. In the last few months, I’ve accomplished a lot of goals I’ve had for my business- marketing and branding, administrative tasks, setting up a new workspace, and getting my Etsy shop off the ground. While I’m proud of checking all I have done, I have really missed having time to make new work in my studio. Today is the first time in a long time when I haven’t had a to-do list a mile long. I sat down at my clear desk this morning, with a clean white sheet of paper in front of me and felt that exhilarating and daunting rush of possibility. It was awesome. For me, it always takes a little time to warm up after I’ve had a long break from drawing and painting, but after a few hours, it’s just like I never stopped. I’m looking forward to having more time like this in the coming weeks, and I’ll be sure to share my new work here, so stay tuned.

Happy Thursday, friends!
