So… I started this piece at the Chicago Mosaic School and put it aside for months. Last week I realized that there was fear connected to me not finishing it and decided to push through that – fear. What’s the fear??? Well it is an 18″x18″ piece that has to be filled with a lot of very small tesserae – that means a lot of prep. It requires a lot of thinking through. It is an aspect of the craft that I am experimenting with, like how to express flow and softness along with static and bold. It is going to take a long time to complete. So often I want it “done” so I can move on to the next thing – a bit ADD I guess. I am taking a breath and committing to finishing. Poco a poco. This is where it was before I left the school and this is where it is now… We’ll see if it works… Anyway it is all an experiment. LOL
