Can Your Art Studio Be Too Clean?

Can an art studio be too clean! For me the answer is yes. I was recently inspired to clean and organize my art room and I REALLY went after it. I got rid of old frames, organized my collage papers, grouped paints, filed photos, shelved books and picked up the floor. Yes, the floor - I have a bad habit of piling things all over any horizontal surface including the floor.
It may not look perfectly organized for some of you but i can guarantee that my studio has not looked this good since we moved in nine years ago. While I love having more space and order, I did find that it made me anxious to have such a clean art space so you can be sure that I took great pleasure in diving back in to my painting and getting things a little bit messy again!
