The Lament of a Messy Painter-
I have all these great ideas for art, for paintings, and drawings and even some crafty stuff, but:
I can’t paint because I can’t find my pallet!
The dungeon is a mess, a super-duper mess.
Filled with empty boxes, half-full boxes, suitcases, several ice chests, easels in various states of assemblage, several plastic shoe boxes of paints, one for standard oils, one for water mixable, a box with my pallet knives in it, and some containers of brushes, one broken brush holder, but my mom made it for me, so it is taped together, a drawing board that needs cleaning and aligning, frames, mats, but most of the mess is not my art supplies, there is a sort of organized chaos to them. Most of it has migrated from upstairs. My old bedroom linens, ea, queen sized comforter, sheets, pillowcases and an assortment of pillows, some decorator baskets, …are you bored yet?
I have been trying to clean it up!
We have been fixing the house up, and while construction is going on overhead, all the fallout seems to have fallen in the dungeon.
It is going to take me a month to clean all of this up!
