boy o boy.

I’ve been dealing a lot with the use of space -which happens to be one of the themes. I spent a long time adding to the drawing from my last post only to find that I didn’t like the composition and I’ve started over entirely. I don’t mind, though. I learned a couple of valuable lessons.

1) I don’t think about space before placing pencil to paper, which might work for some, but not for me.

2) I still have a hard time filling a relatively small space. I seem to scale down when I draw instead of thinking big.

I do this all the time; spend a lot of time on something only to start over. In my professional career, I plan like crazy so this doesn’t happen. In my artistic career, I dive right in with a vague plan. Interesting.

Here’s to lessons learned and starting over!

not sure why it takes so much for me to fill a 12″ x 18″ piece of paper with flowers. each one so carefully placed, perhaps erased, only to start again.

feeling/thinking

space / body / phases – three worksย in the end.

Just three! Feeling the pressure to make these three the very best they can be. Feeling overwhelmed deciding if I should try new techniques or stick to what I know. Feeling excited.

I’m thinking about phases of life:

embryonic

planting seeds/growth

settling

This is for sure what I am going with -but then I struggle with how to represent each topic because my mind goes in 100 different directions because the possibilities are endless.

In the end, I need to trust what I know because it has been working for me for many years and it IS me.
