decide what to work on next?! I can't
really explain how my creative brain
works, but I can offer a few insights.
I usually have a goal or an incentive;
a show piece, an exhibit,
a series, a competition, or a commissioned
piece. And I usually have multiple goals
all at once! So I alternate between subjects
or projects, usually depending upon my
mood or the "squeaky wheel". Right now,
I have the priority of working toward the
Louisiana show that I will need to hang in
the fall, by November 1st. So I am constantly
thinking of subjects for that, and deciding
which mediums will work best for the
ideas that come to me. I thumb through my
countless photos, and get those ideas simply
by viewing them, over and over.
These two images, from a trip down to
south Louisiana, keep coming around. So,
I will probably do something with them,
perhaps a watercolor or a drawing. You'll
have to stay tuned to see!
I hope that clears up some of the artist's
mysterious process...maybe I wrote this for
myself! I hope it will help me focus, and get
some work done!!
