more working

keeping on, today i worked for over 5 hours.  it feels good to get into the groove of things, but it’s also kind of shocking how long some things take.  it’s easy to forget that for a seemingly simple little detail you still have to do steps 1-5 before you even attach something.  i don’t mean that’s it’s easy for the viewer to overlook that point, i mean that it’s easy for me to forget.  i have often looked at past work and honestly wondered how i’d done something.  the last week for me has been about remembering sequence.  remembering how to do.  a and i often joke about the bodies of work we have in our head.  but physically making the work is time consuming.  it’s been very interesting to me to see the progress of 2 pieces, which will be just 2 of many in this upcoming installation.  art making is very base problem solving.  i kept working today thinking i would finish the bush.  at the end of the day i couldn’t.  i am hoping that i will be able to finish tomorrow.  that would feel awesome.

    sarah, when you visit the studio maybe you can bring your camera. these are from my cell phone. really need to get a camera…

  2. Wow. That is really cool, Nicole! There is so much detail in that bush I can see why it takes a long time to create.

    And I love the way you write. I can’t wait to read more!
