I’m live blogging my Big Tidy Campaign of 2017 — only live blogging for now. The drunk blogging may come later. So far, the work’s exasperating but manageable.
I am essentially moving my studio — or big chunks of it out of my sweet little house. That’s the plan. For the present I can only move the stuff to a kind of “staging area” for later transit. And even the things that I could theoretically move from the house today are mostly staying put because it’s raining.
Meanwhile Miss Dog is whining incessantly because, au fond, dogs are not very patient creatures. I told her that once all the work is complete, she can be Official Studio Dog, and then we will be inseparable. Today, however, we are not going to be spending time together because — let’s face it — dogs are not all that helpful to the house tidy routine.
Dogs are too nosey, for one thing. Every object must be sniffed. I don’t know why. But I haven’t got time for it.
Well, I am making physical, mental and spiritual progress. But I let the picture at the top represent these benefits. I cannot photograph the house itself. Work has only just begun — and it’s still in that horror movie stage.
Really, it’s just too scary. Even for the internet.
