Remember how last week I thought it would be neat to do a regular feature on artists who inspire me? And then remember how I said I am bad at doing regular features. And then did you notice how yesterday was Wednesday and there was nothing new on my blog? And no, it's not because I'm not inspired by anyone. I'm plenty inspired. I have lots to show you and lots I want to talk about. I guess the reason for a blog absence is as good a reason as any for an artist... I was working in my studio and lost track of anything and everything. It was a great day because for the first time in a while I feel confident and I am able to make things without getting too hung up on silly details.
Here is what my desk currently looks like. There isn't an inch of space not being used.
Here is a sneak peak of some of my work. I framed this pom pom piece and I'm a little worried that it looks too stuffed in the frame. But since I'm practicing letting things go I'm going to be okay letting it be what it is and learn a lesson from it the next time. And maybe it's fine. When I started this I envisioned it being packed full of garlands so maybe I'm just bringing my usual weird hangups to the table. Ugh. Hangups.
I started this one at the end of the night. I'm not quite sure where it's going yet but I really wanted to do this kind of backdrop. It was fun. I talked on the phone to a friend while I cut tiny pieces of fringe so now this piece reminds me of our phone conversation. Maybe i'll have tiny phones floating around?
