I really didn’t have an idea before starting this painting. Sometimes I just need to start to get momentum. I now feel like there are several ideas swirling round the brain…ready to get started

Finally, from Calabasas, to Ojai

Friday, June 1st, 2012

If you have been following along with my blog posts you know that I have been transitioning from one house to another for months now. Well, today marks the end of that, it is our final moving day. We hired a small crew to help with the remaining items in the garage. Once everything is in Ojai we are going to disseminate more of what we don’t need. The purging, the cleaning and the organizing is teaching me that I don’t want to go through this massive amount of effort ever again. My new motto, simplify simplify simplify. If and when we do add on or expand to the current home, I still want minimal furnishings. I have so much art that we will never need to buy another decoration. Anyway, the end is in sight! holy good gratefulness. Yesterday was a whirlwind of activity in Calabasas, with an electrician working on exterior lights, the living room being painted, the carpets being shampooed and a cleaning girl cleaning inside cabinets etc. We have encountered several black widows in the garage and some other eerie arachnids, erghhhhhhh. So we sprayed the garage and today need to wash and clean once its empty. I am anxious to get to work in Ojai, so I can get back to creativity. right now my little studio space has only a path in which to walk through because of so many boxes of art and supplies. I’m looking forward to making rocks and some busts, some hypertufa planters, some mosaic stepping stones and of course painting. My life will be busy with that and gardening, heaven on earth, 😀 Thanks for not abandoning my blog and I promise, there is eye candy forth coming.
