All the artists in my building are busy getting ready for the art walk. We clean our studios, hang new work, trip over debris in the hall. We have a lot of fun getting ready, but it is also a lot of work. I know, now that we have the art walk four times a year, my studio will get cleaned at least that many times. I still find myself resorting to a childhood trick, though, whenever I was made to clean my room, the closet door would get opened, and any bit of clutter would get stashed away. What is unfortunate for me now is just when I have found the everything that I stashed away, it's time to start all over again.
This is a painting I worked quite awhile ago. Originally it looked like the one on the bottom, but after studying it for an extended period of time, I decided that I wanted the foliage to be warmer. I like the second version better.
