Like there are times I have shown something, and I sort of avoid...looking at it too much because in my heart I know it embarasses me that something about it is not right... I have to learn to listen to that faint voice more- I always know if something is good or not but I don't always like to admit to my own truth.. you know, don't you?
Ususally it takes some time, a day, a month, a year-
You have to be brave either way- brave to stand up and say -I love this- and brave to immediately toss it to the recycling or better yet, cut it up, use it for collage, or if it is work on canvas repaint-
Its sometimes hard to figure out where you are in a new landscape, how do you find your bearings? A lot of my 'new' work is exactly this- a new country...Its so exciting, but I think I have a foot still behind in the old world and I just need to yank it forward and not let anything drag me back...Am I making sense ? I am in a strange mood, I need a fortnight in a spa-I am just joking...
What do you do to clear your head and move forward?
