The plumbing in my art studio is on the fritz, and I haven’t been able to paint for a couple of weeks. The sump pump bit the dust, which means no water in the studio for now. The pump was buried way underground and had to be dug out, which was a bit of an ordeal. It looks like it’s clogged with paint and will have to be replaced.

I’ll have to think about how to dispose of paint in the future so I don’t have this sump pump problem again. Perhaps washing brushes and containers in a five-gallon bucket of water, letting the paint settle to the bottom overnight, pouring off the water on top and letting the remaining paint dry before throwing it away. That’s my best idea so far.
It’s going to be at least another couple of weeks before I’ll have water in the studio again. You know how it is — it’s hard to let go when life happens and changes your plans. We certainly saw that with the pandemic and lockdown. It’s an ongoing lesson, because life is always happening!
When has life altered your plans, and was there a silver lining in the clouds? I’d enjoy hearing your thoughts. You can share them with us in the comments section below.
