Two momentous changes are happening to the situation on my work table. No - the mess is still there - though I plan to draw it all and enjoy an temporary space for however long it will last. But the revolutions are: I have a new tea pot and a new paint water container. Somehow I managed to throw away the old tea pot without sketching it (probably because I was too upset when it cracked). But I got the plastic jar out of the recycling bin to draw (though now I am not sure this thing should be recycled).
