The Pause That Refreshes
I am happy to report that during the month of January I have designed... (not completed,) around 50 ideas for a series of mixed media collages on which I am excited to begin work.
I am planning to work abstractly, with no objective subject matter. It is basically about developing composition without depending on realistic material. But to work in collage for a period of time, my studio needs to be reorganized so I can work efficiently.
However, in the meantime, the available storage space on my computer has gradually filled up, so it is necessary to back up a lot of information on CDs in a fashion that the content is still easily accessible.
Also on March I must begin yard work, pruning, clearing, and numerous other tasks. I love doing it, and it is a great way to exercise, but it is time and energy consuming.
The conclusion of this is that I will not have as much time to devote to blogging as I did over the past six months. At times I have posted some images or poems I did not feel were complete. I want to be able to post quality material on my blogs when I feel it is ready to be presented.
I thought about deleting a site or two, but I am not going to do that, right away. I really like the missions of each of these topics. So I plan to blog periodically and see what is a natural rhythm for sharing my quality creative work, while still keeping life in balance and continuing to be productive in each area of my interests.
If anyone reads this, I would appreciate any insights or encouragement from you related to this topic.
