Here it is, a new year full of new possibilities. Happy 2017 to everyone. Having just emerged from some much needed down time to fuel the creative well, I’m back to work in my quiet studio. As I procrastinated in getting I started, I realized what was going on. I’ve pushed myself to work just a little bit outside my comfort zone, and here I am on the edge of discomfort. Though somewhat anxiety producing , when I do this, the work ends up being more alive and better in the end. It’s very easy to continue doing something that has sold and worked well. Super tempting to press repeat, but it gets stale after a while, and that shows up in the work too. Wanted to share the process with you here.
