What was I thinking? How many times I have I asked that very same question when I am midway through my current creation? The answer is far too many times to keep track of.
I thought I would simplify my creative life this year by working on smaller pieces. I purposefully opted to commit to making a monthly 12″ x 12″ piece. It ought to be doable. Pure genius, I thought, since the size fits multiple obligations. I would get the joy of experimenting and knocking off at least 12 pieces in 2019. Maybe this will still be the case. Maybe it will not. My current piece is another moment of inspiration leading to insanity. Well, that may be overstating the issue. It is definitely proving to be very time consuming.
Good thing I don’t need to make a living with my art. If I did, I would have to cut time corners and figure out a viable alternative process to mass produce petals by hand. Instead, I can opt for peace provided by a repetitive task. It is while doing the same thing over and over and over again, that nuances are seen.
