THAT OLE WORKDESK WEDNESDAY

Not doing very good joined up thinking yesterday, so forgot to take a picture. This is the result - a genuine, Wednesday morning, no holds barred, unashamedly the real thing ... picture of my workdesk. Now this looks messy to me, which means I'm not too happy about it. Be fair, I could have tidied it up before I photographed it, but I didn't, pursant to my policy of being fearlessly honest in my art.
And here is the art in question - very much a work in progress, nay hardly started you might say. It's more of those layers which make me think of seams of minerals hidden in the earth, quite appropriate for what I'm trying to write about. Needs more work, but I like to jump about between pages as inspiration strikes ... which it doesn't always!

Off out now to indulge in some "Fat Wednesday" hi-jinks with my old man - this is his day off so it's the day when we ditch the healthy eating etc and go out for something luscious like an all-day breakfast! The rest of the time we try to be good. It works for us. Back later to admire all those lovely desks .... and if you don't know what this means, get on over to Julia's place and join in.

I am in love with the background on these pages. And being a neat freak, I can totally understand how you would think your desk is messy. Happy WOYWW (no. 12).

I really like that page of your journal - that is my mission for next year I think - an art journal. Wish I was that tidy.

I my definition of "messy" does not quite match yours... Your desk looks very tidy to me! Love your journal page. Happy WOYWW # 82

Rosie - that desk is disgusting LOL - yeh right... each to their own.

Love what you have scribed in the journal - I think i'm also quite a lot of those things you have put down - so, apart from you being a neat freak and me couldn't care less - we're quite similar underneath!!!

Hope you went for broke on the bacon and eggs!!! LOL!
