Bundanon Residency Day 2

Today began with a short meditation and set up of the studio, some 'morning pages' (a daily writing exercise offered by author Julia Cameron) and a big bowl of cereal.
The studio floor is an asymmetrical palette of past colours laid down by previous artists who work at their craft on the floor. There is something comforting to me being around this evidence of creativity, as if the room itself grants permission to let things 'flow'. All the while I am at my desk, cutting up pieces of paper, devising ways I can have a studio this size when I return to the Blue Mountains. What luxury! The psychological and physical space to create work corresponds to, and governs the type of artwork which may come into this world. A Tiny cramped and windowless studio does not make for very inspiring artwork.
