Lately I find myself wishing that making art was more like cooking. Meat has to get to a certain temperature before you know it is done. Or the cheese has to bubble. Or the crust has to brown. Why can’t art work that way? How do you know it is done? My last two pieces I have worked and worked the piece yet failed to realize when it is done. I find myself wishing I could go back a step or two and leave it alone. The piece pictured here”Stop and smell the roses” is one of those pieces. I still have a step or two left. Mainly, adding some nails and a hanger. Maybe a little fiber or ribbon.
I would love to hear your thoughts.
