A Deadline Motivates!

The opening of my solo show at Mitchell Giddings Fine Art gallery is 6 weeks away. Despite trying to balance my day job and my elderly Mom here for the summer, I find I’m being much more productive during the precious minutes of studio time I can carve out.

No dilly-dallying! No endless indecisiveness and tortured second guessing! It all feels a bit scary but so satisfying!

The first two large convex seeds are mounted (with rigid rug padding inside) and the third one is mostly finished. I’ve also simultaneously begun working on several smaller pieces for the show. This is all such a revolution in my usual only-work-on-one-piece-at-a-time style.

Once the show is hung and my mom has left, I wonder if I can somehow keep myself creating in this way…

    Oooh, I love what you’re doing! I’ll bet the satisfaction of seeing the whole collection come together will inspire you to start dreaming of the next one. And if you take a break for a little while, it will be well deserved. Seeds grow during the quiet time.
