I have adjusted fairly well here in East Texas. It most definitely has it's challenges. Like not having a studio space to create. I usually handle it ok and just go to the garden...but it's gotten REALLY hot now...SO.... the other day I had a melt down. I cried out of sadness...because I've just got to create something! Frankly, I'm tired of doing it in the kitchen! wink wink!
Hubs is so good to me. He sat down and made up a list of all he needed to put an AC unit in his big garage workshop...it was already here and is massive in size...you can drive an RV into that thing! He picked all that up yesterday and will get started soon. This is why The Shepherd's Studio is taking so long...there's always something else needing to be done. But it's coming along.
Now I can start to do some reupholstery projects on some furniture I want in my studio. (Yes, there is going to be a seating area for friends to gather to create with me! Or for Bible Studies or Home Group...whatever God wants to do with it...it's His.) I bought these great chairs from a friend. They have good bones and just need some TLC! And we brought an old sofa from Maryland that I just love so, I'm going to use simple neutral linen.
It's been WAY too long since I've taken time...mostly because I don't have a space to spread out. I have to get everything out an put it away (at least what I can find...many boxes still unpacked in the garage waiting for the move over to The Shepherd's Studio).
I get my inspiration from life around me, from creation and from other artist. I never "copy" another artist, but allow it to inspire my own creative juices. When you do steal...Steal Like An Artist...and ALWAYS give credit where due!
After all....There is nothing new under the sun!
