Amy Duncan posted about the latest craze on her blog recently, to upload photos of our shelves instead of our selves on Instagram. Great idea. No Instagram for me, so I won't be playing with the big guys. Nevertheless here are three shots of my studio shelves.
Largely I don't have room to collect stuff other than my own work, books and art supplies. Who cares, right? All of this stuff is photo-worthy.
Lest you wonder, I'm definitely planning to resume creative play soon, with painting in particular, at the other end of my art sabbatical. There's nothing like clearing the air of immobilizing thoughts and self-created pressure.
I'm not there quite yet, though. I continue reading a lot, not just novels and materials about creativity. I'm also reading books about women in our later years, about creative aging, and pondering what it is I aim to be up to for the rest of my life (read: how to productively spend my time from here on out). Which brings up the issue of commitment. Which I'm also looking at in light of my life thus far, and the rest of it.
Have a great weekend! xo
