I didn’t get around to the art room yesterday — more paid work than I expected to have to do.  I did make some time today.  I managed to clear the clutter from the work table and sort some more stuff for recycle and freecycle.  The supply shelves are still a mess and there are several boxes of stuff on the floor to go thru, but I do have some actual work space available now.  Plus I can see more clearly what boxes and items I have to use.

Here’s the cleared table:

I even managed to start painting one of the boxes seen above.  Unfortunately, I haven’t touched my paints in so long that some of them are dried up and unusable now.  I’ll have to do a thorough inventory and then start replacing them when I can.

For now, I’m just excited to have some work space and some painting started.
