My Art & Time


This is one of my favorite memories from last summer. But, last summer I really did not like it! I was playing with inks and the layers of sheer colors I like, the idea of weight, the unpredictability of things. And like so many of my pieces, I put it away and forgot about it. Then, a few months later I took another look and saw all of those ideas anew.


This happens a lot to me. I have to put things away, not think about them and when I come back I can see what it needs, or decide that I really like it! Sometimes I finish and am pleased straightaway, but more often I have to put it aside. I wonder why that is? Time, space, and clearness of the eye maybe? Do you just forget the hard parts? Does this happen to you?

Hm, the Inner Critic is perhaps more civilized after some space!!!

Clearer eyes, clearer mind. Giving something space is almost always a good idea. I love this piece!

Thanks! Yes, I think the idea of space and clearing is accurate!

I definitely come at things with a different perspective when I put it away or aside for awhile. I, too, am not sure what this is. Perhaps distance gives us a different perspective, time allows us the space to ignore the Inner Critic? I have to do that when I write my essays, put them aside for a few days then come back to them with fresh eyes. I love your piece though, it catches my attention.
