seth apter at the altered page has a great project this week called "the paper stack project." his call for photos of stacks of stuff in studios immediately had my mind buzzing. i've got those. which should i choose? papers? canvases? bills? lol! no... the craziest stack in my studio belongs to my 6 and 3 year old sons, zane and zachary. this is their recent stack of coloring and sketch books. and these are just the ones in the studio right now. i didn't even bother searching the piles in their bedroom or the stash of completed ones in the trunk that we have to keep forever.
every once in a while...ok, no i'm lying...quite often i freak out over the piles and piles of these books all over my house. but when i stop and actually flip through them, i see that almost every page is colored and drawn on! and that includes the backs. so, have we created a monster over here? i don't think so. i say that is passion. i say that is true love. mess, yes. but monster, never!
you can see more pictures of stacks from seth and other artist studios around the world at the altered page!
