Day 31: Change My Perspective

I've learned three things in this 31 Days of Focus:

1.  I need to accept my creative style.
2.  I like sculpting more than sewing or painting.
3.  I need to look at my sculpts upside down.

Number 1 is key for me going forward.  I need to change my perspective and accept my creative style.

When I'm coming up on a big project, I collect stuff. Fabric, magazines, books, pictures on my hard drive, etc.   As I get closer to the project focus, I purge the stuff I've collected, usually in a fit of self-critical self-talk.  

But here's what I've learned.  While I am gathering stuff, I am thinking about the project in my head.   And then I plunge in, with clay and cloth and move forward.  I think this gathering phase is part of any work that I do. 

"Do not let what you cannot do
keep you from doing what you can do."
