Yes, my word of the year is Consummate. Now, wait, I know what you're thinking. Why does a woman who has been married 20 years chose the word "Consummate" as the creative word of the year? What kind of creating is she planning for 2015?
All teasing aside, consummate means "to complete with perfection". I've noticed with my work that I have a tendency to jump from idea to idea. But what artist doesn't? Still the really good artists tend to study and complete the full scope of an idea before jumping to the next. Which makes sense. How are you going to get good at anything without working completely through an idea?
Another failing I've noticed with my work, is that once I see the idea coming to light, its hard for me to finish it completely. I tend to get bored with the end work. My mind is already off to bigger and better things. I need to take my time at the end, finishing up the little details.
So this year, no more flitting from one idea or another, whirling back and forth, not truly finishing anything to perfection. I'm going to create my own personal "Punch List" by critiquing each project, making the corrections before letting it go. With so many ideas left unfinished from 2014's Master Class, this is the year for true completeness. I want to see what I learned come to fulfillment, to see the visual proof of what I learned.
Hmmmm, seems like in 2015, I have my work cut out for me!
So what have you been up to creatively?
