I sit here at my computer...thinking of all the things that I can share with you about what's happening at the Kynard House Studio. First and foremost..My studio is taking shape! It won't be long before I can have my work table built (I'm designing it now). I've actually moved my computer into the studio space, have established WIFI (with a Netgear Extender) and when I look around I still see scattered stuff, but it's getting organized!
And before I got it this far...there were many decisions as to what to keep and what
to toss! I didn't even keep stuff lik you see below, even though I was sure "someone" could use them!
Currently, one side of the studio is for computer work, another is for mixed media art, another is for sewing and the last is for more storage. It was once a large garage and I tried to claim the room over 28 years ago. But it was not meant for me to own this space as "all my own" until now. As my cousin, Stella (another thriving artist) said, " It's a woman cave!" My special spot is now all the way at the oppostie end of our home...totally away from my original office...As I work towards my goal....
I'm still spending time drawing, doodling and painting my creations.
I'm making time for a garden, and I'm sitting on the deck that leads off our bedroom in the early morning and late afternoon. Inspiration strikes and I'm quickly grabbing my pens and markers to create pieces like this:
I've even managed to streal some time to lounge in my hammock that my husband Tommy made sure was hung properly for me. As I rock in the breeze I surf the net on my IPad. My newest discovery is Pinterest (my daughter, Shannahon showed me the ropes...) and I'm now hooked! My granddaughter, Trevy set me up on instagram so that I can begin a phase of marketing for the art work and photography that I would like to sell. All in due time I keep thinking...
I am not the most patient person in the world, particularly when I have a mission in mind, such as completing my studio, marketing product or even completing work projects with Kynard House Publishing. But I also know that time with loved ones, making beautiful memories and literally stopping to take in all of the good things that are around us is by far the most important opportunities to savor in life. Life doesn't wait...and there are only 24 hosues in a day.
Take a moment to absorb the words on the poster that I created with a photo I took at Silver Springs, FL. My very favorite bird has some wisdom to impart. Think on this! Until next time, Edie
