Today is Day 24 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
The theme for today from the photo challenge I am using for inspiration is “Perspective”.
We usually think of perspective as drawing objects in 2 dimension to give the impression of their 3D quality.
Perspective though, also refers to one’s point of view or how one looks at things.
When I look at my art room, it may seem over-crowded, but I see:
-possibilities – what I can do with different media and art supplies
-work finished and works in progress
-works my children have done
(A woven wheel I created and a colourful mask my daughter made)
-my struggles to get something right
-others’ works of art that inspire me
-books that mean so much, that I have learned from and used in teaching
I know my children see this room as cluttered, as junky and one that needs to be cleared out.
I suppose we are both right in a way – it just depends on one’s perspective.
I prefer mine!
Your photos are wonderful. Yes, perspective determines who we think is right or wrong. As long as it’s your space, you’re right! Here’s to possibilities.
Thanks Glenda! I will eventually add more order there – but it works for now.
My daughter and I cleaned the sewing/craft room at our house 2 weekends ago so she could have some space to add her crafting and art. I’ve given the children a cupboard for supplies they can access on their own, without permission! My 7 year old now sits in there for long spans of time crafting.
How wonderful for them. Helping you clear it will make it so much more special.
I see possibilities too! Do it the way you want and don’t worry about anyone else.
I know – I usually just ignore them and go right on working away in there.
Bev, this made me smile. Kathy and I have different opinions on her her sewing room, but hey, it is her room. She doesn’t criticize my shop and I don’t complain about her sewing room.
My husband’s the same. I am sure he’d like a bit more space but he’s never said anything.
Powerful. Perspective changes everything. I love how you look at that space. Potential. Possibilities. Go you!
