Well finally I managed to discipline myself to get some decent studio time in. I mean to do this you realize I have to get into my studio by 6 am. It felt good though - check that - it felt amazing!! My studio missed me and I missed it.
The more I work on my Fall 2 - the more I like the piece. I love the colors. I love the graphic nature of it. I love playing with value and using my own hand dyes. I love that when I start quilting its only going to look better. This is a series that has legs. And most of all??
I love that its design is done!! Finally! Cool huh?!
Now all that said, its weird for me to like a piece so late in the game. Normally by now I've already decide my art is garbage - that it will never measure up to other fiber out there - that I'll never get better and OMG why in the world did I even bother. Is it too late to learn to knit?
But I finish it anyways 'cause what else will I post on Off the Wall Friday??? - grin!
Once I put it away for a while - I take it back out and hang it and say - "Hey this isn't too bad. Maybe I'm not wasting my time after all."
Its easy to listen to that little voice that says you'll never be any good. Its a bit harder to just tell it to just shut up and mind its own business.
So what have you been up to creatively??
