I go on creative kicks and just want to stay locked in my room, eschewing all else, to just churn out piece after piece. Of course, that can't happen.
I'm learning not to be so 'predictable' with my work. At the moment I'm not sure that's the right word. I cram myself in a box, this is the way it has to be. I'm learning to 'introduce elements of the unexpected'. (that's from a Jane Austen movie) Give into ideas I think will be boring. Rarely does a design stay the same from ideation to completion. And boring in my mind, isn't necessarily boring to someone else. There's nothing wrong with simple, not everything has to be elaborate and take days to complete. I'm learning, this process within a process. Growing up, becoming me. I'll get there.
Also, if you see a darkly colored wooden frame that is square please let me know. I bought a print ages ago from mlee and didn't frame it for a variety of reasons. I got a quote today of $130+, just for the frame. Uh, yeah. I tried eBay...almost nothing. I'll keep looking.
Post Picture: Me wearing my latest necklace-y creation. Will probably come to the shop on a made-to-order basis in the coming days.
