A couple of weeks ago I was talking to a local artist friend about the project that currently has me stumped, Poppies and Willow. I mentioned that I had started work on another small thing to hopefully shake out the cobwebs and maybe a solution would present itself subconsciously, as sometimes happens. He suggested that maybe the thing to do was to just get in there and attack it. Of course, I think I know what I’m doing, so I told him that I usually end up with something I’m not happy with when I force it. But guess what? I think he was right. At least this time.
I did complete a small project – one to just keep the creative juices flowing, while taking the pressure off the problem. No luck, so I guess I’ll attack and see what that gets me.
This is the small project – Green the Grass Grows – 8” X 8” - transparent smalti, glass beads, tempered glass and polymer clay on mirror.
