ARe You IN nEeD oF STasH TherAPy?

A great friend is starting a new life and emptying her studio.  Of course I had to help out and relieve her of several boxes of must have goodies!  Of course one plan for the New Year - last New Year I think - was to cut back on the accumulations.  Every time I have pangs of guilt I remember elinor peace bailey's quote - 

‘There is a purpose in having stimulating materials about you when you are about to begin a new piece.  This is your visual muse.  It creates that critical mass which pushes you over and all you can do is act.  Some of you have collections of natural objects, photos, drawings. Notes to yourself ......what Lisa Lichtenfels calls ‘true facts’ ....or colored objects and materials.  That’s what pushes me over the edge.  Whatever is contained in those heaps and piles they call to you.  They tip the balance of your fear of failure – against your need to create.’

  1. Hi Joy

    happy new year! I did subscribe to your posts but don't get them. I see them when I go to post on my blog (which sadly isn't very often). I love your writing. Brightens my day! Not sure if epb's philosophy works in my case. I think 20,000 photos is simply information and colour overload. ahh! but the year has started well creatively. I really want to play this year. hugs Ann
