What does your art work surface look like?

Desk Photo

Here is a snap shot of the top of my drafting table after I just finished up a marker rendering project.  Are you neat and tidy with your art supplies as you create your art?  Do you have an “organized mess” of art supplies on your desk surface or art area?  You will note that I separate my markers, use images to get visual ideas and will practice before the final image

Do you take time to clean up your space after a project is completed? I use the cleaning up of my art area as part of the transition process.  It helps me to let go of the finished project and prepare to start on the next one.  Clean up my art work area after a project is completed is part of my creative process. It is a signal to me that I am done with one creative challenge and getting prepared for the next one.

    I love how you show a peek into your creative space. I, myself, would have my markers very organized and separated by either colors or sizes of markers. I feel better about my space when it is tidy and neat, which could also play as a downfall instead of a benefit. I spend so much time worrying about the cleanliness and organization of a project that I, in turn, take time away from the actual project itself. On the other hand, by the time my project is completed I would have spent so much time emphasizing on the cleanliness that I usually just walk away and leave my organized tools behind for later care. My antics are a bit of a contradiction I would say, something I will need to work on. (:
