Studio gazing

photo (11)At my bench in my studio is a bulletin board filled with various cards and other things that inspire me. Some of these cards are over 10 years old. Some of the sentiments are even older, like the August will take care of August one. A dear relative said that to me when I was fretting about what I was going to do in August in March. And next to It’s fine it’s up there in my personal mantras.

I’ve been looking at the board lately and trying to decide if there was anything that could be swapped out, or eliminated. And I decided on this little gem that adorns today’s collage, I might exaggerate a little, but... Other pieces of this collage are from a drawing from college. I’m looking to old work to see what I might be able to discard, reuse and incorporate into what I am doing today, with the ultimate goal of eventually minimizing my belongings. This was another sentiment that used to adorn the bulletin board–also along the lines of minimizing. I might exaggerate, but  I’m really working to simplify. And today’s entry is a declaration to that.

Fear less, hope more;
Eat less, chew more;
Whine less, breathe more;
Talk less, say more;
Hate less, love more;
And all good things are yours.
