If one would be thinking too much about how nice it would be to have one's own style or voice and not yet have it, one might be discouraged and create no art.
If one would be thinking too much about what one read recently about one's work looking too much like another's work or in a specific style that too recognizable , one might not make any work because it didn't feel like what they were making was very original.
If one felt they weren't making any progress, then one might not make time to work or make it a priority.
If one thought that dyeing alot of fabric to work with was plenty of work, one would not make any art. She already did enough for the day.
If it was too hot and there was too much company last week, so what a perfect excuse to make no art.
Just excuses, aren't they? Being much more honest with myself, I find it hard to return to making things after I have had a break. Much easier to keep something going. I don't care who my work looks like right now because I just need to keep going and keep creating. I looked back at some famous ones earlier works and they all look the same. I hope never to criticize others who are working through it in the early phases of their work-no matter who they work with, how they work with and what they work with.
I did stitch last night. I am back in my own barn today making my own marks on fabric.
Be creative, my friends and keep moving ahead. And don't think too much while you do it because you might end up being your own worst enemy !
