I’m still working at a fast pace as if, after being bottled up for six months, the creative energy is just pouring out. I am presently working on six pieces and the pace is yet another exercise in letting go. I am proceeding as if I was familiar with the road I am on and knowing which way to go. The process is not unlike sketching. I am less concerned planning the “aesthetic destination” and am more concerned with the journey. The trick is to stay loose and not get too concerned with having to be perfect.
I had a drawing teacher who once said to never be afraid of putting down the wrong line. It is only by putting down the wrong line that you know where the correct line goes. So working on six pieces allows me to not get too hung up on trying to be perfect and just enjoy the process,… and the pace.
