To keep myself focused, I decided to work in a series. I have many styles that I wish to explore and many times when I work on one piece, I get an idea for another piece. Sometimes within the same concept, but many times very different. Since this “bouncing around of concepts” has been frustrating for me, I have a solution. I have pre-cut 12×12 inch squares and each one can be an idea. Then I can revisit each idea and expand upon it to create a series. So the fist series is titled “Steppingstones” and it is wax, collage and thread, the second series is titled “flowers” and it is wax, encaustic, and tissue papers. Lets hope that this will keep me focus.
