Will I never learn? If I kept my studio clean I would not have to binge and purge every year around Open Studios! First I stuffed everything into every place I could. Now all this week I've been hauling stuff out including canvases of failed paintings and yes, I believe one can learn from their mistakes and that parts of failed paintings can be studied for future paintings...so take a picture! One doesn't need to save every last thing. I'm happy to say the purging is complete and it is SO satisfying to chop up work! Big storm coming this weekend and I'll be ready for it, music, wine, clean studio and lots of ideas ... YAY.
