89/365

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Yesterday was Monday. I didn't take any pictures, but I accomplished a lot.

Here is it, in boring gory detail.

I cleaned out my locker and found all the things I've been hoarding, to use "someday"
Made a free pile, and moved the rest into my studio.
Organized a bit more in there.
Then Steele and I went home and did some more cleaning.
(We cleaned out under our bed, which has been housing lots of old art, and has been on our home to-do  list since we moved in.)
This involved lots of...

"But, what are you going to do with it?"
"No one will buy this, right?"
"Ugh."

And lots of art in a trash pile. I do not want to be a person who holds onto everything they ever made. I will not be that person. Not being that person requires throwing things away. (Recycling the paper, of course.) Lots of test prints and old drawings and duplicates. Lots of things that were once important and no longer are, and it's the doing them that's important, not keeping the end result.

We decided to have a yard art sale. We made a pile of things we don't want, but don't want to trash, to sell for cheap. Hopefully this weekend. Yart sale.

(Sorry this post is so jumbled, it's just sort of how I've been thinking lately.)

It made me feel really good, last night did. Our bed is completely clean underneath, which is awesome. We have downsized to two portfolios of art and a few frames.

All this to say, really, that we had to clean our under our bed to put up our new "headboard"
Our new headboard is made up of two panels Ali made for a project last year. Steele and I both love them. I particularly love them because they look like nothing I would ever make, but they're so appealing. I like hanging other peoples art in my house because it keeps it from looking like a shrine to my aesthetic. Living with stuff other people make actually makes me feel a lot more inspired and joyful. (This might have to do with the fact that I hardly use color, so were we to hang everything I made it would get really boring.)

Enough jumbles.

Here you go...

  1. I read day 89 after I read day 90 but it looks to me like Ali's work help to inspire your day 90! Fantastic!
