Lately my mind has been a jumbled mess. It is frustrating because I've had some really good extended periods of time of non-jumbledness and those times are so productive and fun. But I suppose what goes up must come down and I'm just in one of those down times. I have confidence that the next time I am up it will surpass my last most creative period. Things just seem to happen that way. For now I am trudging along, doing what I know I should be doing the best I can until I can snap out of it and run (creatively speaking of course...). I've been experimenting with some textiles! I made a rule recently that if something sounds like I fun I do it. So buying embroidery thread and experimenting with different ways of wrapping it and even having a go at knitting with it using fine wire as knitting needles happened. It was fun and interesting. So mission accomplished. I had this thought about using embroidery thread instead of latex paint for the skin of my Old Man. Experimentally it is not working in a way that I like. But I think I want to explore some new colour themes and then maybe some new approaches. I'm not fully giving up on the idea yet..... I'll let you know how it goes.
