I've been working every day on new jewelry and photography for my Etsy shop, and some days are better than others. One day, I will have a complete epiphany and I can't create fast enough, and the next day it might take me several hours just to finish a set of ear wires. It's artist's block, and I am learning to appreciate the patterns as much as the processes. But it's not an easy thing to learn.
I am a very impatient person. ;) This is impatience with myself, more than anything else - but as anyone else who has similar issues knows, this can really sidetrack projects!
Our cabin has a deck that wraps completely around the house, and the light will change drastically hour by hour - this makes photography quite an interesting challenge. We also live in the midst of an old growth redwood forest, and so light is filtered which makes for interesting exposure challenges! I love it, though. Each gaze, each turn of the head can bring inspiration, and this is the joy I want to feel my entire life.
I'm learning much more these days about copper. Don't know if it's the earthiness of the metal, but I think it has to do with the brilliant colors within - it brings such joy! Here is what I've been working on recently:
What have you been working on recently, and what's been inspiring you? :)
