I wrote last year about getting stuck, no ideas, no drive and no interest.
This time its different. I’m really enjoying myself. Midway through Toxic another box idea sprang up (which I’m working on right now) and I hope to post it soon. It involves fans, feather ones, thats all I’m saying. There may be some techniques worthy of blogging with this one.
Midway through that more box and wall art ideas keep coming. I hope I can pull some of them off.
I’m also collaborating with a fellow LJ and artist, Ross, on a box.
Exciting times. So why do I feel anxious. Last year it was because I feared I’d lost interest. I could understand that. This time its because I hope it all works out and nothing gets in the way of being able to do it all; ill health (I’m not feeling 100% right now), loss of facilities (we rent, what if we have to move) money or any of a number of other things.
One thing I’m resolved to do is carry on with this stuff as long as and in any way I’m able to. The woodwork and being here on LJ’s ,with all the support I get from you lot, has made these last two years happier and more productive than any for a long time. So, whether you like it or not, I will be carrying on carrying on (ooer missus – in best Kenneth Williams voice).
Be seeing you.
