Would love to post some pics of work but most of the stuff I am doing right now is computer work. Uggh!
I have though started new work on a couple of things but no pics to show just yet. First there’s the Orchid Project. I have 5 pieces to make for it and I’m trying to whittle down my selection.
I want to try some new techniques with them but it all depends on the time frame. The 2nd new work is a larger one of my off-the-cuff pieces.
I don’t know if any of you remember about 2 yrs ago I decided to work small. It gave me a chance to get work done without feeling overwhelmed by the pressure I felt to produce larger pieces (self-imposed of course). Well guess what?
“WHAT”, you say?
I now feel the need to work larger…the smaller pieces I now find are too confining…so I guess that means that my method of pushing myself worked.
I’m find that I’m now comfortable with 18 x 24 and even up to 24 x 30 format (no sizes are written in stone mind you). I’m still struggling to start but that starting time has gotten shorter.
Some of you had commented that you like the ‘word of the year” thingy (it is too a real word!) I spoke about in an earlier post and I hope some of you have found your own words to help you the rest of this year. My two words (intention and self dicipline, the harder of the two) have greatly helped me move forward.
According to Alyson Stanfield (her book above) we should redefine our goals especially if we haven’t done so in a while. So that’s my next step. Redefine my goals for the next year.
Have you redefined your goals lately?
Do you know where you are headed with your art?
Are you flying blind? or flying straight (a few loop-de-loos not withstanding)?
Talk to me people. Take and assessment and see just where you are headed. Hopefully it’s in the right direction for you.
See ya next time “In the Hayloft”,
