I have nothing to show of my big piece for the MCS show...the pressure to finish it fast is causing a bit of creative block...so I'm easy back on it a bit and really seeking some inspiration all round me...I have the images and colors I want but the inner parts that I really want to express have made their way to the surface so being at this sensitive state with it I'm backing off on showing some pictures..and I have to be kinder to myself as if it doesn't get finish in time...so be it I have plenty that can fit into this show/exhibit for the Downers Grove Library..
Had a talk with my art buddy and cousin Doris few days ago and something stuck with me...She said I'm not doing what I want to be doing or it might have been... I'm not working in what I want to be working on... that stuck with me and keeps coming up....you see I stray from this way to that like a ball on a string and I to am not working in what I want to be working in....I had a series started and with the workshop and preparing for them which I'm most grateful to be doing...I go a stray and my studio is a wholly mess and I scramble to make sense of it all and the words keep coming back...and now I switch them around and ask..."What is is that I want to be working on and in?....next question is am I? why not? and what do I need to do to be proactive to make that happen? Oh alot of inspiration has come from that talk and the words I hear...Doris thanks for sharing...I keep sending up good thoughts for you too.
I think I'll fit in a little morning walk in the woods before the rains come...Green is great! so is Brown but now I've had my share of it and I feel Green is Great!!
