I challenged myself to make 100 pieces of art for the Open Studios show this weekend. Considering I started a new job on February 1, and also endured a flood in my house at almost the same time, it is a wonder I got even close.
I am glad I got all the way to 72 pieces – 72 expressions of what is going on inside me. I did them in collaboration with a friend who sources me with the materials. I am very happy with them, but I also feel they may be complete. The next step will be to recycle them yet again into a larger piece – they have served their purpose.
I’m heartbroken about the outcome and the next art has to be about that.
