Live boldly, laugh and make art

Painting In The Basement

The name of my blog is I Paint I Write. I have written almost every day since the beginning of March when I joined a writing challenge hosted by two writing teachers.

I have not painted.

I either have to change the name of my blog to

I Don’t Paint I Write, or I Mow The Lawn I Write, or I Wash The Dishes I Write

I realized one of the reasons I was not painting was my painting area was cluttered.  Jeff Goins said clutter keeps me (and you) from creating stuff that matters.

Today I cleaned my art area.

I  painted.


I paint. I write. I do. I really do.

    I’m working on cleaning out clutter right now too. I found receipts and coupons from January. 🙂
