I am overflowing with inspiration and ideas. My biggest problem is trying to narrow it down and focus on just one. That applies to just about all of my life though. I tend to find inspiration everywhere which creates constant evolution in my work and myself.
I sold two pieces this week. One piece was a piece I had just finished. Instead of rushing through it, I sat back and let it evolve slowly. it’s a piece that when I started, I had envisioned to be something different by the end. It’s birch trees right before winter. I had planned to add a few dwindling leaves hanging on. Once the trees were done though, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do anymore to it. I put it up
on my facebook page to see what others thought. I got an overwhelming response to just let it be. I slept on it, woke the next morning and saw it with the sunlight coming through the windows, and decided that it was done. I liked it in it’s simplicity. I think the leaves would have ruined the entire feel of it.
I’ve been a reactionary person most of my life. Do it now! I’m slowly learning to trust the process and feel my way through it; to allow myself time to step back and look at what’s in front of me before my (generally emotional induced) quick reaction. Looks like this time it paid off.
