A new project has begun. Not an art project. A foundation project. One corner of the house has settled and the “prep crew” is here. Goodbye hedges! Hello large holes around the perimeter of the house. Yikes. It definitely is a distraction. On a normal day, I’d be deep into a painting project or at least getting the “foundation” for the art piece ready. You know, making sure the paper or canvas is properly prepared to support whatever media I put on top of it. (Like what’s happening to the house right now.) So… I will either force myself to ignore the chaos outside and focus on what I want to do next or pull out a translating app and see if I can figure out what the artisans (and in their profession, they are artisans) outside are saying. Maybe, instead of painting, I should learn Spanish.
