Joy in the Doing; Organized Start to 2016

Things won are done, joy's soul lies in the doing.

William Shakespeare, "Troilus and Cressida"

Podcasts, blogs, posts and magazine articles are full of advice for the start of the New Year 2016.  The start of the year is always a good time to do something new or better or healthier or even more thoughtful and organized.

And I am happy to report that the art studio "mini-makeover" is completed.  Actually the work in the studio began last February when new flooring was installed.   A good clean-out and rearrange was documented in my blog on Feb 1, 2015.  

New shelves for the studio were put on the to-do list and a search of Pinterest provided several ideas.  However, art shows and prior commitments pushed that project back until now.

Last week after a fresh coat of paint was rolled on the walls, the new shelves were installed.

The shelves are just wide enough to hold a canvas or board or a framed painting up and out of the way.  No more work piled on the counter or on the floor (I hope!).  

Here is a close-up of the shelf construction; three pieces of wood securely screwed together to easily hold "whatever".

Although this is not a "Pinterest-worthy" photo it should show how the shelves are filling up and also provide a sneak peak of the work laying on the counter that is being varnished for framing and delivery the first week of January.  I will share new work in the next blog.

Happy New Year!  And here's to 2016 for all of us to reach our goals.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.
