Do you ever feel like you have adult ADD? Just can't seem to focus on any one thing
until you're finished with it? Well, I certainly have a problem staying with just
one form of art. I jump around from painting, to collage, to fabric art, to making
jewelry , and then on to working with clay! So I've decided to give myself a break-not be too harsh with myself for not having the ability to stay focused on
one particular medium. I'm going to start calling it Hyper-Creativity Disorder!
Or HCD if you will. There's just so many things I want to play with and it seems
there's so few hours in a day. So I generally have at least 5 projects going at any
one time. Although the projects are Generally in the same medium, i.e. 5 collage
projects, or 3 background paintings, etc. I try to finish those little projects then
move on to another medium. Last week I posted a work in progress. A canvas I started
layering colors on, then showed you the poppies I started to paint. I haven't finished that one yet. I did however finish another one that I haven't posted yet
as I'm not sure how much I love it.
I was hoping to finish my canvas before the urge struck to move on to another art form but that didn't happen! I have moved on to a project that got put on hold when
we moved over the summer. I'm really excited about it now that I found it.
So here's another work in progress. It's fabric art. The base if velvet that I embroidered on first, then felted silk fibers across the bottom. I'm going for
an ocean theme. So the next thing I plan to do is alot more hand embroidery along
with beading. I'll let you know what happens. Who knows, I'll probably start another project!
