All of my unfinished artwork makes me a tad anxious.
Half painted canvas leaning up against the wall, unfinished patterns on my desktop, art journal pages only half coloured in. All of these things make me a bit squeamish inside. I feel that everything deserves a fighting chance. Slowly, I am learning that they do not.
Sometimes you just have to walk away..
For example – this page is not going to be finished. Why? Because I am done with these flower shapes. I need some new shapes.
If I gave all of my ideas a fighting chance nothing would be completed around here. I need to decide pretty quickly if it’s a yay or a nay. I only have so much time to create. Slowly I am learning to use my time wisely and accept that not all ideas are good ideas.
The pages below are new pages I have been working on. I like them, but they are not quite where I want them to be…yet. They deserve a fighting chance though because I am learning from them and new ideas are percolating because of them.
Also, I am having fun with these. Fun – usually a good sign that things are going somewhere.
Ok, a bit of mixed media craziness may have been going on here, but trust me, I learned a ton from this one!
Enjoy the weekend!
