Returning to Old Projects

Otherwise known as the “half-finished pile.”

In my half finished pile lie:

  • a half dozen garments in various states of completion
  • a quarter inch scale New Orleans mansion
  • sketches for new alchemical imagery
  • botanical illustrations of the garden (watercolor paper purchased)
  • a wall painting to complete
  • visions of medieval religious icons

Over the past couple of days of feeling moody and irritable about ongoing shutdowns and Mid-May snow, I pulled out the top item on the list, and finished it.

Whoosh a refreshing surge of enthusiasm and inspiration followed immediately.

I got the next item out and started working-

BAM ideas were just streaming in. I had to keep a notebook by my side as a I sewed in order to capture everything.

Think of it as dredging the river.
