I've been back in the studio for a week now and I'm just getting the place clean enough to work. If only I could KEEP it clean so I don't have to go through this every couple of weeks! Actually, it wasn't all my mess, Aaron just moved his computer back into his studio. So I had to rearrange my computer desk, plus clean up the mess I made getting ready for the fair.
What's truly cool is I just received a FREE flat file cabinet to put all my prints in! It's perfect! So now, between the free cabinet and the $20 cabinet I found at the flea market, I can get organized. The value of these two cabinets if I were to buy them new would be over $2,000! These aren't your regular filing cabinets, these are large size flat files usually used by architects for blueprints, etc. So, no, I don't usually get excited about filing cabinets, but these are something I've been dreaming of for close to 10 years! Up until this point, I've used portfolios and shelves to store my flat paper, art and prints, not to mention the boxes and boxes of prints in the closet! Now I can actually FIND things because I can label each drawer with it's contents. Maybe now I can stay organized!
Pretty funny the things I get excited about! Well, there's still lots of work to be done, and I haven't had time to paint in over a week! I may spend the entire day painting today. Time to get some new originals up on Ebay and my website.
