I have reached a point at which I feel the need for an assessment of what I’m doing, why, and of what I want to do. Amongst other things the work I’m making at present is too slow to keep up with my ideas, and that is having a dampening effect on the excitement of those ideas. The stitching element is taking up time which I want to devote to print making. And I still have vague ideas of trying out three dimensional work, somehow.
I now think I want to eschew external influences which are constraining. I’m giving up thinking that my work fails because it does not fit into a size category, for instance. Indeed I don’t want to think of being in any category at all.
I think. Well, I have quite a bit to think about. I am certainly not thinking about giving up working in some way; it is an essential part of living as far as I’m concerned. But I have vaguely thought about giving up this and the Threading thoughts blogs. As I say, it is to be a Year of Big Thinking.
