Do you remember the song “I’ve got a hole in my heart and it can only be filled by you” (lyrics.. I think the song is called wholehearted..an early 90’s jam 😊). That is how I am feeling right now… this past week I have been working so much I haven’t had time to do so much as a doodle. It’s making me sad!! So.. another 12 hour shift today and then let the creativity commence.. if I am not too tired of course! Oh!! And I wish all the mamas a Happy Mother’s Day!! 🌸🌺🌻🌼💐🌷
So I have nothing but time on my hands mostly, but it’s been rainy and crappy outside, and I haven’t made and art for a few days. So today I decide that I’m bored, so I pick up some hospital shifts for the weekend, two 12 hour shifts will ensure I have no art time. So then of course my creative spirit started to rally… and pushed me right into a new project!! It is killing me not to finish it right now but I need to get to sleep 😴 so.. I will wait until Monday. Have a good weekend everyone!
What I am learning is that every single piece that I complete, I feel is better than the last. This leaves me in a weird state of constantly reviewing finished work and wanting to tweak it. I have learned so much since I started and I am starting to get scared that I will never think anything that I make is good enough. I love this Chow Chow piece, and I enjoyed every second of the process, but I felt that way about my last piece too…and now I am looking at that last piece, which was my favorite a week ago, kinda thinking it could be better. I guess I will be happy that I am improving and hope I don’t hate this next week!
