is it possible to keep a tidy art room if you are a perpetually untidy person? My husband says no.
i am an untidy person! i can't (naturally) keep anywhere tidy. i always have papers, paints, canvases, finished paintings all sitting on the floor. My desk is always a hodge-podge of stuff just dumped onto it (please refer to evidence in below photo) it gets so bad that sometimes it even annoys me! but somehow i manage to get stuff done. and believe it or not a tidy it up weekly and put stuff away.
my honey-pie's theory (and i believe he read an article about this that got him mentioning it) is that if you are a naturally untidy person, no matter how frequently you tidy up, you will be back in a big untidy mess before you can say "blissful brush", because that is how your brain is wired.
you know, I think he might be right. just take a look at the desk in my art room in the photo below. i know i tidied this up on friday. really, i did. honest.
maybe i need to make a concerted effort to keep things tidy? prove my honey-pie wrong. nah, why would i want to do that? let him be right.
