turning a new leaf
on august 31st, i finished up a major five month renovation of the home next door to my own. because of the state of disrepair the house was in, the project became significantly more involved than we had planned for. long story short–it became all consuming. on september 1st, i handed over the keys to the new renters. so yesterday was literally the first day in five months that i woke up with nothing on my calendar and no mental punch list of problems to solve. i celebrated by going into my studio with no agenda other than to play. what a wonderful feeling that was! this singular creation, a collage really, was a collaboration between me and my bestie kristin, who had come over to help me celebrate. i love it for itself–for its balance, color, and whimsy. but i love it even more for the freedom it represents.
