Shelved

As I was working in the basement tonight I took a moment and looked behind me at the shelves lined with unfinished projects.

Armatures, experiments and pieces that just didn’t quite make the final cut, reminders of projects once filled with excitement and now just gathering dust.

Every time we have maintenance folks venture into our basement I wonder what they must be thinking.

Does the furnace guy think he’s wandered into the lair of a serial killer.

Do the sewer guys think they took a wrong turn at Albuquerque?

These unfinished pieces do serve an important purpose; besides being reminders of ideas that have come and gone they are useful for experimentation.

Today I played with a new surface technique and as luck would have it I was able to grab a skull off the shelf and test the new material.

Cheers to my shelves of past history; the skulls, the shark, masks, the pumpkins and everything else that lies in wait for their chance to see daylight.

How cool is it that you can just "grab a skull off the shelf"?!

I LOVE the idea of repair folks heading down there and thinking they've stumbled onto Buffalo Bill Jr's hideaway! Too funny!

Yeah, I wonder what the guys were thinking as they were working on your house. None of them have made any comments?

Love it!!! Wish I was that organized ;) I often wonder the same thing when repair guys have to venture into my attic, where all of my Halloween goodies are stored =)
