…or something about the way i am…
materials, techniques, ideas and some of the other 10,000 things excite me.
when the starting of something new or a glimpse of a finished work – in my skull – excites me, that’s where i like to go, to explore – even if it means dropping something else to get there. i’ve found that i do my best work when i’m excited to be doing it.
over time i’ve learned to allow myself this kind of jumping path. as a result, i like what i’m doing most of the time. i’ve also found that i often go back to things and finish them when my excitement for that thing returns. at any one time i may have a number of works or projects going that i intend to complete – in my own way of course.
i like working this way.
one of the things i have to do on this planet is become me. i’m reasonably sure i will be the best complete me that there will ever be in this world – at least for my time being, even when others follow up on things i do. i like that.
the more i work in my own way, the more me i become. as i see it, the more me i become the more unique my work will be. no one that i know of has ever seen how i will become on this planet. no one including me, has ever seen what i will do. which means not even i will know exactly how to react to my work – at least initially for some time.
one reason i do my art, is to find out how it will become, because in some way, that is how i am becoming too.
