So I've been so busy this last week that I haven't really gotten much done and I feel crappy about that, household chores, a holiday, and al those little things seem to be eating-up my time. I have this huge rendering that I threw ink for almost two weeks ago, it's 34" x 25" and it's just been sitting there, daring me to finish it.
Actually, I think that I'm just putting it off, it's so big compared to most of my other work that I think it just scares me. It is a great blotting, all the features are there, I just have to bring it out, but I'm letting it psyche me out. So, I've just been working in my art journal.
I keep an art journal in a big book, where I write on one page (about 3 letter-sized pages) and then I blot on the following page, this gives me a way to track how I'm feeling and what's going on in my life in order to see what type of blots I get, and to see if there's any correlation. This gives me a back-log of smaller renderings on which to work on those days where I don't manage to get much time for art. Although ALL my art is self-exploration, these pieces stay in the book.
And here I am, blogging instead of working on the piece, but I'll get to that as soon as I'm done. That's what I keep telling myself, but I have to do it. I also need to get pictures of my recent stuff so I can put them in my portfolio and start making the rounds in order to get a show. I need the money!
SO I have to get my act together and get this stuff done! Gotta get a show or two between now and my show next year. I cannot sell anything unless people see it! ANyway, that's my rant for today. I'd chat more but I have plenty of work to do! Until next time...
