Hello from the porch portion of the studio! These are some good days weather-wise and it’s been nice on our porch with a big table to work on. In the upstairs studio, there are still bears underway. My porch project is the next bears&boxes piece I have undertaken.
I’m trying a different method this time. It’s probably not a whole lot different but I hope it will help contain the proliferation of supplies and materials. Enter The Box. See arrow below. This box is meant to contain possibilities and options.
I have a germ of an idea and to get going on it, I have visited almost all of my stashes and gathered an assortment of items which may (or may not) make it into the finished project.
In fact, once that first bit of paint or glue or medium goes on, I might end up going in a completely different direction.
As it stands now though, the direction I want to go seems pretty clear and I probably need to rein in some of the options. It will be interesting to look back when it is complete and see how many and which of these items makes it into finished piece.
Right now, at the beginning, it is wide open. I can see how each item could contribute to the overall theme. I can see them transformed. I can visualize this going in a lot of different directions but . . .
a lot of what goes into one of my pieces is as much about what I choose to leave out or leave off as it is what to include.
It’s a case of more not always being necessarily better.
So I shall begin and see where I end up. Hopefully with something fun – maybe cool. Hopefully.
