I explained in my bullet journal post that I'm working with a professional organization for both professional and personal reasons. One of the things that she said when she initially visited my home studio is, "Why don't you have more of your art hanging in your home?"
Her reasoning was- Paige, you don't have to store as much if it's hanging on the wall for everyone to see.
It's a simple concept that caused a large (good) explosion in my brain: I despair over my lack of space but I don't take advantage of the most convenient and least expensive way to work with what I already have.
Here's some shots of what I've accomplished so far:
I understand that this organizational strategy won't work for every artist. But it does for me but it took someone else pointing it out.
The unexpected bonus? I literally get a tiny jolt of happiness every time I see one of my paintings hanging on one of my walls. It's a small reminder that I am full-heartedly pursuing my dream of making art and reminds me to whisper a prayer of gratitude more frequently.
