Yesterday time spent in the studio was mostly for cleaning up and putting away the stuff from this weekend’s class and demo.
It seemed to take forever, and I’m always fighting distractions that take me away from cleaning! I stayed on track today and got the job done.
I figured the best way to take care of the demo stuff was to finish them all off and then all the pieces parts could be put back in storage, not left in the to-be-finished pile!
My class project is the only thing left sitting on the table and I’ll try to get at that sometime over the weekend.
I was struck by something I read today, though, about an individual’s creative process. She uses another person as a sounding board to move her work along. Just talking to her friend, even with minimal response, helps her to firm up her ideas as she works. We talked about the creative process in class on Friday, too. For me, I have always worked alone and those class situations are good for starting something but I can’t get too serious until I have quiet contemplation time. And since I have been doing this blog for a while, the pictures and pauses and comments have become a part of my process, too. It helps to take an occasional look at how you do things and assess if it’s working for you. This holiday weekend, which is an interruption of routine anyway, might be a good time to do just that!
