Last week, my husband asked me: “Are you still doing that abstract project?”
Me: “Yes, I am.”
Me: “No. It’s whenever I get to it.”
If you’ve been following me in this project, you’ll know I’m on a bit of a hiatus. With back-to-back fairs and a looming vacation there has been so little time for creation.
That’s why I don’t set time limits on these #30edits projects. I know myself. I know I’m not an everyday-come-what-may kind of creator. I know that having a deadline on creating art will make it stressful for me, not fun. I would kill myself to achieve and then resent it.
That’s not a good formula for making art.
That doesn’t mean that challenge and struggle and pushing through boundaries aren’t all part of the creative process. They absolutely are.
But the challenge does not have to be in every dimension, so I take it out of the dimension of time. That works for me.
You will definitely see more #30edits abstracts soon, and I’ve been experimenting with some collage art as well. Lots of creative material to work with.
Perfect timing too… I just got an iPad Pro and Pencil! After three different people, whose iPhone art I like and respect, told me it would rock my world, I decided it was time. I’m looking forward to creating art on the big screen.
When I have time, of course.
