Today is a bad water day in the Yarost studio.
Not only am I having studio flooding from the torrential rain that has been falling all day, but I managed to capsize *two* containers of water on my drafting table, ruining one of my art pieces. A combination of laziness, frustration, and carelessness have cost me several hours of work and have prevented me from working on a couple of fabric projects that I had queued for today by soaking them, as well.
This makes me a grumpy artist.
I have already found a way to make some of my clutter pay. One of my stored art projects, consisting of several 4×6″ photos in small clip frames, has been on my nerves lately. It has been stored in its original packing, which was optimal for moving, but less so for storage purposes. I found an underutilized Patagonia shoe box, which just happened to fit the entire project perfectly!
The improvement is delightful, which has helped to soothe my big bad mood.
