Getting ready

Now that I've got the go ahead to turn the sketches for A Photo for Greta into paintings, I've been spending every free moment in my studio getting ready. It kind of feels like I'm about to go on a trip and need to pack things up and put things away before I go. Once I'm knee deep in painting its impossible to keep track of things like filing and where the stapler goes, some part of my brain is always thinking about whatever is on the drafting table.

So I'm packing up, putting things away, cleaning like crazy. I hemmed the pants that have been sitting in the corner for a month, packed up my great aunt's costume jewelry collection (on the floor since the new year), and weeded out my sock drawer. I took care of travel arrangements for school visits coming up and started my taxes. My schedule is made.
