It's a good day. Days of refreshment in the mountains followed by more peaceful time in my studio. I wish all my time could be spent like this...time in nature has helped clarify a project I've been working on. Just what I needed.
I find that so much of what I do begins as a small idea, sometimes even just a fleeting thought, which grows slowly until it becomes something that I can see in my mind's eye. And then something I create with my hands. It's never really the first thing I've envisioned but becomes so much more as time goes by...I just need to give it time to let it bloom.
And as I dream and plan and begin the work in stages I sit and stare at the work as it progresses in order to begin to envision what could be. I'm getting really excited about this and can't wait to see where it goes from here.
