Yes, I know what I said. But check this out. I had some old plaster kicking around. I spread it out on a 12 inch square board. I didn't worry too much about the smoothness, I am hoping the extra texture will give it some interest. Then I used a couple of simple tools to incise some interesting pattern. I can't wait for it to dry so I can start to add paint etc.

Project 17 is not going to fun. This is the desk in my art room. Behind me looks almost as bad. I started off the year with a lovely clean space to work in but a flurry of projects and it soon gets out of hand. But it has to be done. Some artists will tell you that having a mess is all part of the creative process. I dsagee. I think having a clean space allows me some room to generate ideas. It is the execution stage that I generate a mess. But when I am "topped up" on mess I start to stall. So this week I am going to open my space and my mind.

This week has been very enjoyable. I have has my mom visiting. I didn't plan a project for this week but I am feeling the pressure of playhouses coming. Maybe tomorrow I will get my materials for the kitchen. The weather just just doesn't seem like lumber shopping weather
