My studio is humming, and I am working until I start to think about what I’m doing…..Then I STOP! I stop because I start to second guess myself, and slip out of my right brain. It works for me to think of myself as playing like a three-year old, and the minute I grow up, it’s death to my creativity!
The Mermaid painting is a perfect example of me as a three-year old, spreading molding paste, gesso, and paint all around. Pushing, and pulling, adding and subtracting, until it is just right. I decided to stop before she started going in another direction.
