Are We There Yet?
A journey may start with a single step, but how does it end? In fact where is the end? This is precisely what I find myself thinking as I spend the day completing just one, then just one more, OK one more step after that and I am still not finished with Sunrise Over the Atlantic.
There is something very exciting about starting the journey of creating a new artwork. Because it is not reality, the vision in my brain is still well within my grasp. However, during the journey there are points when it seems as though I’ll never finish. As soon as the piecing is done it is time to prep for and start the quilting. When the quilting is done, it is time to square up and finish the edges. Even when the last stitch is in and the label and sleeves are sewn to the back, there is more to do.
Really? Yes, really. I’m not there yet. I don’t consider a piece like Sunrise Over the Atlantic truly finished until it has debuted on my site, been featured on my social media and its glamor shots are ready should the perfect call for entry present itself.
Are we there yet? Technically, no. However, I can see the finish line and that is close enough for this post. How about you? When do you know you have finished your artwork?
