Most of my handiness goes into the making of art that when it comes time to get it properly photographed, hung, and even submitted to exhibits, I find I'm left deft and confused and tired. Multi-tasking has never been my strong suit and in fact I find it over-rated. The ability to focus and concentrate deeply on several closely related tasks is my gift (although in the last few years this has been challenged). I'm a slow thinker...it takes my brain a while to shift when its time to move on to another topic, task especially when it is a shift from generating creativity to pragmatic matters at hand. Thats the way I'm wired but I keep trying to learn to re-wire some parts that will allow me to complete the cycle of productivity. I don't know why I'm talking about this here other than to say I've spent most of the day thinking about how to display 4 small pieces. I want them matted and framed but without glass covering them. From there I think "I should learn to mat and frame my own pieces". From here I jump to "but damn, thats just another thing to learn and there is only one of me". I know, I know, I make myself crazy this way...but it always comes back to the thrill of the process of making the art and this is where I want to use my time and resources and all else let come what may and I'll deal with the consequences. Its is especially sweet and its own reward when I create pieces I love such as the pieces below. I forgot I had a 12"x6" series going back in the summer...it gave me joy to uncover them.
