Dear Chicago House,
Yesterday was dark and drizzly here so I decided to make a start on the art room in the basement. This has had no TLC since I moved in and is really not a very inspiring place to “create”
However I got very little done as I became completely consumed with an old portfolio I had stashed in one of your cupboards.
It was filled with old paintings I did as a teenager, I will share those with you another day, but one in particular caught my eye because accompanying it was a photo, of me, aged about 17, in the process of painting it!
I was copying from an image in a magazine you can see stuck on the wall, I don’t know why it never got finished.
Also if you look at the top center of the photo you will see a pot filled with pencils ..this is the very pot I recently photographed with my polymer clay covered pens.
I will try harder the next time I plan to makeover the art room!
