Not an exciting picture per say but but feels relevant to the thoughts I'm sharing on #studiolife #artiststudio I used my precious #studiotime this weekend to sweep the floor. My mental space was not in a place of #making but I really wanted to be there. So I swept. For the first time!!!?! I've been in this studio almost a year- I just sort of threw my stuff in then went away for 5 weeks then fall semester started . So I never really have #takingthetime to care for the space. It felt so good to quietly sweep this giant industrial room. I felt like in caring for it I was caring for myself. The floor was filthy and since it's 100 y/o wood floor with no finish it still is but... It still seems like an important small act. #motherartist #vernonstreetstudios #thespacewecreate #artist

    Two mentors of mine have said that they sweep upon every arrival to their studio.
