NOTE TO SELF – Thinking this evening about the projects I want to work on in the studio this week. What do I need to risk? I need to risk the chance that working in a new way may create a finished project that goes in the “Nope!” pile. Risk the chance that I will spend hours – when every minute is so priceless – going down an unproductive path. But those are really the easy risks. I have begun to think more deeply about the story I want to tell in a series of pieces. I have taken at-bats at the concept of a girl’s inner journey. But there's much more to say. Many more emotions and memories for grappling. Artist-as-storyteller-archaeologist is a daunting role. May this little taped reminder be a way to keep focused.
