One of the many things one faces in their twilight years is the time has come to put “one’s house in order”, ( Mary Baker Eddy). I have started cleaning out and disposing of and giving away hoards of materials that I will probably never use again. I am also trying not but any new supplies but use what I have on hand. I plan to keep all painting, collages, etc on flat surfaces so they can be easily shipped or stored. I am creating my own portfolios out of left over acetate envelopes and mat board that I used at art shows. I started creating collages in journals that have been sitting around empty for years. All of this has kept me busy and my studio is a mess! The more I dig out the more it looks like I have! One thing I learned is to use up that precious paint, as it does not keep forever. I had to throw out a lot of dried up expensive paint. How I regret not using it more freely. Lesson, do not buy more than you need or will use in the near future. Enjoy it now!
