I've stepped back from the studio and working on canvas/panels and returned to what got me into painting to begin with, Art Journaling! Watercolours, pencils, stamping and other simple mark making tools are easy to transport, can hang out with you on the deck or other summer fun places. Keeping it simple!
Simple is good. It's a life style I've been reaching for, transitioning into for a long time now, less truly is so much more for me! Decluttering, getting rid of excess or things that don't reflect your life now or serve you, gone! One question echoes through my mind all the time, " Does this reflect what I truly value?" Boy, does that clear out your living space, refine your Studio and above all how you choose to spend the time you are gifted with.
There are a lot of people embracing 'Simplicity', or Minimalism as in the case of Josh & Ryan of The Minimalists. We come to it for various reasons, my health and life with chronic pain was/is mine.
Whatever you are up to this Summer, I hope you are having a grand time living it!
