Check out what I made in kindergarten! - 06/05/2013

Okay, seriously, this is about my sketchbook and about my next piece. So, some people have sketchbooks that are works of art in themselves (see also "journals"). It's not my way.  When I "see" the piece in my mind's eye, all I need are my notes to guide me to its completion. I have 8 x 10 notebooks in which I scribble those notes, with my rough ( very  rough sketches). Sometimes I'll colour them, most often not. The piece I'm working on right now has had many incarnations - this was extremely unusual and troubling development for me. For the most part, my art comes to  me whole - i.e. I see it, and my job then becomes to create it.   The initial process takes weeks, sometimes months - from the time the idea occurs to me, to the "marinating time" (also known as "background music").  I have a kernel and then I let my subconscious play with it, toss it around, fondle it, coax it -  whatever it takes to breathe life into it while I go about my business.  After a period of time, the idea will blossom, and one day it will appear - full grown in my head.  And then it's time to get to work. With this one - it just wasn't happening.  I knew what the subject matter was and the feeling I wanted it to evoke - and thought I'd settled on "the one".  I quilted my fabric, I painted the background, I was ready to start. That was back in MARCH. But all through April, and then through most of May, the Muse said "no".  I kept turning it over...
