this cabinet is the coolest thing on the planet. it was painted green by some person very long ago who happened to know just the shade of green i love. this piece was found at a street fair, and i bought it for storage at the shop. when we closed, i had the right of first refusal. so it came home with me, and now lives down the hallway from my studio. i really wish it could fit in the studio, but i will say that it looks pretty terrific where it is.
i spent the other day cutting up some old cards from a "flinch" game to make the numbered tags.
then i decided to put all of my printmaking stuff in the drawers. i figured since the drawers come out, i can carry what i need down the hall to work in the studio. the drawers are kinda small, but perfect for carrying. one drawer is about the size of a ream of computer printer paper.
here's some of my printing stuff:
warm colored inks,
there are 27 drawers, so i won't bore you any longer.
funny that i decided to make a printmaking station, and now i have lots of prints to make for the cherry creek arts festival! i think tomorrow is the day i begin. i'm still terrified, but i think making work will help. i also started reading "art & fear" again, and that always makes me feel better. if you are the creative type, it's a wonderful book to read. it always makes me feel like i'm not so crazy.
the adventure begins!!
