So it's established that an artist's studio is very difficult to purge. I did a bit more google research with a Feng Shui approach and found a few more ideas that are helpful. I especially like the Zen philosophy of a "Tomorrow Box"....this is a box for those items that you feel you "might" need at a later date. Place these items in the tomorrow box then tape it up and put it in an out of reach location. Make a note in your calendar to check it in a year.... if the tape is still in place after year- do not open it but "set it free". You apparently had no use for the items...with luck you'll have no idea what's inside. What a test of character not to take a peek. Maybe at that point you'll have a new tomorrow box to take its place and more room in the studio too!
This is not my "Tomorrow Box"... it's a Treasure Box- priceless
Here's the studio on the morning of Day 3.
The storage zone is clear, the work table and desk are the main focus today.
