That second back surgery and thyroid cancer really kicked my butt. I just don't seem to have the energy to even think of doing any art. Just opening my etsy shop seems like such a chore. Another part of me not doing my art is that I have my studio in my basement. My home was built in 1920 and at least twice a year I will get the drains backing up. I'm used to it but it leaves the basement so humid I get a rainbow of molds growing on the walls near the floor. I used to spray and scrub with bleach then I read to just use hot soapy water. It goes away but comes back. I can't afford to be running my electric bill up to run a dehumidifier.
I have COPD ( Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease ) and the mold makes me cough and I'm sure it isn't good to breath. So I use my laptop upstairs when all my art supplies are, yeah, in the basement.
I tried all the drying out chemicals, should have bought stock in the company. I would need the industrial size and it's only good for a month.
Anyone out there have any suggestions that don't cost tons of money. Yeah I'd love to have a studio with big windows, lots of sunshine, warm in the winter and dry all year round.
I do have an "Artist" page on Facebook, it's The Gothic Garden art by Bernice ( Hodges) Wagnitz. I'd love your thoughts on my art and if you like what you see than please "Like" it.
I've done quite a bit of new art since I last posted so I best get busy and get them in here.
More to come.......
