Finally the lethargy lifts.
I am involved in an exhibition with some friends at the beginning of June and to say I have been putting off the work is an understatement!
We have been planning it for a while and others are very busy producing work
I however, have procrastinated, avoided, moaned, had a frozen shoulder, had a rotor cuff injury, tidied, taught, spent time with my kids, family, friend redecorated rooms, anything other than actually sit down and produce something.
Last week I was discussing with students what prevents us from making and creating when it gives us such pleasure. Lack of a realistic dead line?
Ideas have come and wandered round my head, most weekends have me moaning that I need to work on it but I knew that it was still to far away.
I tried doing a little each day. Rather like a write should produce 200 words a day.
This particular piece got stuck in the ugly stage and was hidden away. Not to be touched or thought about
Finally this weekend I sat down to work on it. Less than a mont to go. That's usually when the dalines kick in for me.
At least I get going with a month to go.
It could really be all last minutes
Now I am almost back in love with the work. Trying to find odd moments to work on it.
Bang goes the housework......
What's it about?
Well I am currently embroidering an umbrella with "lost things" to hide in a box.
Hmmmmm. It's about what we look for when we make and enjoy art.
I'll explain more later.
