Trying to find ways to stimulate creativity interferes with the real world, and organization is something that has always made me feel energized.
So a few days ago, I decided to start cataloging my paintings; ranging from works I’ve done as a teen back in the 90s to some most recent ones. Once cataloged and photographed, I searched for the most affordable storage space I could afford. Being able to clear some space near my easel makes me feel somewhat reinvigorated.
Having looked at all the early drawings and paintings from back then has helped me get a sense of orientation, it brought me back to a place and point in my life when drawing and painting was both an adventure and emotional exile.
