Hey friends we are halfway through the week already! I do not know where time goes sometimes, really what happened to Monday and Tuesday? So since it’s Wednesday I thought I would link up to WOYWW. It’s an exciting week for WOYWW as they are celebrating their 12 year anniversary and have an ATC swap planned. I have not been linking for very long so I am not joining in with the ATC posting part but I am linking my desk for this week and want to say Congrats! Twelve years of weekly posting is a lot and needs to be recognised and celebrated. Our book group is coming up to its sixteenth anniversary so I can appreciate all the time and effort that it takes to keep it going as well as the good friends we have all become along the way.
So here’s what’s on my desk this week…
I ADORE that colour! It’s one of my all time favourites and I really have to stop myself from using it in everything lol.
This is a different view of my desk from what is usually shown but it was the only angle I could get to fit both pieces in. The small page is of course my art journal but the big piece is something else entirely. I was really surprised that it would sit on my box easel but I was glad that it did as that made life a lot easier. Also on the desk you can see a big jar of dirty paint water, and a lot of fluid acrylics and acrylic inks, a dirty palette and then all the usual stuff that seems to be permanently on the desk. In the background is a lot of messy storage and things still on the floor being homeless since I switched rooms. These things had a place in the old room but for some reason don’t seem to have a place in the new room. There is also some of my Kaleidoscope paintings from last year, a dressmaker’s dummy and a big kettlebell which is absolutely not used for exercise but does make an excellent doorstop!
What is also on my office desk this week is a post-it with a reminder about some website upgrades that need doing. It’s been there for over a week and I need to find time to sit down and do it but I feel exhausted just thinking about it as it’s a pretty big job. Not particularly difficult but just time consuming. At the same time, I was thinking of making some design changes to the blog, because websites are for tweaking lol, but I have been trying to limit my time sat at a screen for various reasons including headaches, so that also might not happen anytime soon. Still the longer it drags on…
Both of the WIP art projects on my desk are actually finished now but you will have to wait until Friday to see them and to find out more about the larger piece if you are curious. Hope to see you then, meantime if you want to see some photos of the Outer Hebrides check out this post and if you like cat art have a look at this post.
