Sculpture and Clean Up

Something that rarely gets factored into the beginning of any project is the clean up at the end.

I made up a couple of bouquets of residual wedding flowers and gave them away. Ran the mower over the rest of the greenery and put it on the compost. Took the time, after 4 days, to get that tiny rose thorn out of my thumb. Spent the rest of the day cleaning the studio and reorganizing the wood shed. Things changed from total chaos to calm and clear and ready to begin again.

So often I want to be done with a project but rarely do I savor the pleasure of clean up or rest in the space of complete. It takes a lot of work to get and stay empty, but what a lovely place.

I, too, have far too few days like that. In fact, I can't remember the last one I had. Glad you took advantage of the opportunity, and reminded us of the possibilities.
