Here are the photos:
This is the canvas I got rid of. Can you see why I didn’t for so long? There’s so much detail already put into it. But you know, I’m not looking back! I feel good about not having it in my life anymore 🙂 The benefits of de-cluttering!
Here is the art we hung. It looks great!
Thank you everyone for all your suggestions – they were very helpful for me in making some decisions that otherwise, I probably would have just pushed aside and ignored. The most notable thing I threw out (besides some art supplies) was an unfinished painting that was not a wobble style, rather, a realistic style painting. I had probably invested at minimum, 20 hours? Of course, I have had this canvas in my closet for at 5 years hidden at the back. I had a hard time finding time to work on this for all those years, and I can pretty much say for sure that after having a kid, yeah, there’s no way I will ever paint this one again. So, I took a picture and into the trash it went. I didn’t think I would feel as free as I did. It is not my project any more 🙂 I am more available to work on other, more important things that are calling for my attention.
I organized “the box” and it now houses the display items that I need for shows, as well as any “business” type things like information cards. I put the few art supplies I kept for my daughter in a place where I will find them easier. My art counter looks and feels cleaner. I went through my paint bottles and found some empties that were thrown in the trash. Also, and probably most importantly, Andres and I put up some art that we’ve been meaning to put up for quite some time. So, the closet looks less cluttered too! Wow, what a great project. I am not at home this week and forgot my camera cord, so pictures will have to wait until I get back.
