In the process of arranging my studio and preparing for a new body of work I realized that I have probably started, stopped and put aside as much if not more works then I have completed in the last 2 years.
Part of a healthy artistic practice is keeping notes, facilitating feedback/criticism, employing a sketch book and staying constantly aware and curious.
One cannot always be working on an epic masterpiece, or putting the final touches on a body of work; the grind is in the weeds much of the time, and many times those weeds are compelling in their own right.
Been a while since I rapped at ya.
Been a while since a lot of things. Life has been moving, no doubt about that. Some art and some fishing has happened, as well as some cool projects like this one with Fly Lords., and a contribution to the Reel Service Project from Vedavoo.
But on the whole, I’ve been feeling that malaise…that all too easy state of complacency that shares company with streaming services, regret from reading the comments on social media, and falling back on a belief that I have limited capacity. Essentially, being lazy.
