Okay, I am on a mission to finish a project and KEEP IT! Easy you say, ah hah, much easier said than done LOL for me anyway. I don’t usually repeat too many projects because the puzzle is usually solved after I finish, so I move on to something new. It really has nothing to do with boredom, see I knew that’s what you were thinkin’. I guess I am a “Been there, done that” kinda girl in regards to my creative endeavors. The fun is in the new creative adventure, see where an idea will take me, and to solve all the problems that (most definitely) will arise when I least expect it.
In the past I have made a few mosaic projects. I think I told you that they started out cookie cutterish. I really wanted to improve on the execution of my clay cutting and painting technique. I have always been in awe of those artist who can recreate flowers that look soooooooo realllllllll! If only! I keep trying, I will never aspire to those works of art. But, as my Pop reminded me in the past, everyone “sees” differently. Beauty and form are so varied by the eye of the beholder. The media I choose to paint with is also less forgiving, once it is fired onto the clay there is no correcting.
My blank slate is a bench Steven made for me over the summer.
