And at other times things are just an uphill battle.
Which has been the case this past week with the new series I am working on.
So, today I shall follow my own advice from the Cloth Paper Scissors interview:
What do you do when a piece isn’t working out the way you want it to?
"Keep forging ahead. Making a piece requires and open dialog with the materials. It’s not just about me; I am a partner in this dance called art. I have to listen to what is working and if its not, adjust accordingly. If a piece continues to be a struggle I move on to another piece."
Which is exactly what I am doing today, moving on from this new series. I will return to it eventually but we need a break from each other right now.
Happily I already have a new piece started in my head. Time to get out the tools and bring it to fruition. I’ll keep you posted.
Until then, may you have a creative day!
