Day Six – October 6, 2010
Looking back 10 years ago today…
I see an image that I’m not proud of but I would have a few of those over the course of the year. Some days it would just be important to clear the day for things like I did on Day Six – to travel and some days the trudge was such an epic marathon that I needed a break from the intensity. Most days I devoted almost a full day to the process. And like ten years ago there will be times I don’t carry the original story forward much – like today.
And the story will continue tomorrow!
Shifting to today in 2020 I wanted to share with you my current website and personal Instagram! Today I cleaned my studio so if you head to my Instagram you can see the messy space and then the picked up one. It was very needed and overdue. (click here to see my studio)
I used to have a bed in the corner where there is now a big white chair and ottoman. It was for guests if I needed extra space but it was also for me. Bending over a table to paint is hard on my neck so I get up and lay down sometimes. But now it is time to move away from that for many reasons and a comfy soft chair (even with a heating pad still is all I need – hooray!)
This chair and ottoman were a gift from my Mom before I received a diagnosis of Ankylosing Spondylitis. Doug and I were newly married and living in the San Francisco area so our money was extremely tight. We only had a very hard sofa and I was just starting to really fall apart physically. Mom bought us this chair and ottoman and a sofa – it was a Godsend. I’ve had the set for about 20 years now and they are well used at this point, the right arm on the chair slipcover is threadbare, but this chair means love and comfort. I can’t think of a better place for it to now live than in my studio.
