Picutre a Day #62 – Another Art Project

Anyone who attempts to follow my train of thought knows that I hop around like…well, someone who gets more ideas than I can follow through on in any given moment. I make a lot of lists. Right now I have several art projects in the “hopper”.

It is often necessary for me to start on something before I lose my train of thought, and then go back to it when I am ready. Sometimes this takes a very long time. The evidence is hiding in my art closet.

A still life collage emerged from the closet this morning to glare at me. There are two colored pencil still life drawings waiting for watercolor enhancement. Now I have today’s topic. It popped into my head yesterday morning as I was gazing at the corner of the ceiling before I dragged myself out from under the covers into the chill morning air.

I have found myself gazing at the corners of ceilings before, studying how the light bounces off the surfaces. As a math teacher, it was often my task to help adolescents “see” three-dimensional images on the two-dimensional page. It has always fascinated me.

So now I have decided to do a series of “corner studies” along with my “fruit studies.” I may combine the two, as I am attempting to combine Prismacolor pencil sketches and watercolor. I also have plans to go in another direction with my corners. The bent corners are an attempt at artistic humor. Who knows what will happen next?

    I’m delighted to meet someone else who has a room full of projects on the go, or in the “hopper”. I really like having lots of art projects waiting for me to start, finish or work on. It means I can do what I’m feeling inspired by. Occasionally I have projects that have a finish date but I usually start them well in advance so that I’m not under pressure. Sometimes having some pressure works for me because it makes me focus. Occasionally I Iook or think about all the projects I could be working on and I get a little overwhelmed so I try not to go there.
    I like the versatility and the range of art that is waiting for me. I find that what I gain from working in one medium flows into another.
    I like your idea of combining your corner studies with your fruit studies. It sounds innovative. Go for it!

    I agree that variety is great! And it’s best not to let yourself get overwhelmed. Find the fun in between. Thanks for your encouragement!
