I guess it's like that. Some pieces just refuse to take form and at other times, some pieces just jump up and take form. I can pretend that this is a direct process, that I know where I am going and that the work is clearly envisioned in my head,... but it's not. It's rather more like a game of hide and seek. It's a rather tired cliche but I really do know when a Foundling is"right" when I see it.
I guess the only exception to this is when I dream about a Foundling that I'm working on. It's a bit creepy when I do this so I don't talk about it much. I guess I should get out more. This is still unnamed and is only roughly put together. Parts still need to be stained, nailed down and glued. Certain "engineering" aspects still need to be worked out as well but I am pleased.
