Atop a Tarp

Last night I dreamt of myself making art.
I had put a tarp down in my dining room.
There were art supplies of every kinds everywhere.
I had spread out everywhere and I was working, really working.
My heart was full and my head was humming with ideas.

I realized that what I need is a safe space in which to get messy.
I am someone who loves order, but in order to create I need to make a "mess" in a somewhat orderly space.
Am I making any sense to anyone but myself?

I also realized that part of my creative block right now is that I do not have EVERYTHING, all of my supplies, at my finger tips. I have them all, but they are stored in the baby's closet and I take things out one "project" at a time. TOO CONFINING! This limits my creativity.

I could actually buy a tarp, clear out space for all of my suppies in our buffet drawers and/or front hall closet, and create on my dining room floor.

I am not sure that this is the best way to approach this, but at the very least it is the kernel of an idea.


  1. You make are making sense. :)

    never wait for a "good time" for your ideas. if you have a creative thought, get it OUT! don't confine yourself OR your creativity.
