In my last post, I forgot to mention how messy it is to make a mosaic! For this reason, my three beginner sessions have been invaluable in showing me the nature of the process and what is required. My indoor (carpeted) work-room is not suitable. I would need an empty garage or messy studio space with access to water. So I think I need to put my ‘big idea’ for a garden sculpture on hold until I find a more suitable work space!
In the meantime, this week I’ve received requests for 2 commissions (of my usual work) and have decided to make them. I need to get myself back into the work habit again by creating something. Taking advice from Art and Fear (Blog post 28/12/19) don’t stop!
And I have an idea for a more abstracted piece – I need to allow myself to be experimental; to try something new and to risk failure. Watch this space!
