Two of Two, and Productivity
So here, as promised, are the other two drawings for this weekend. There are a bunch of gallery applications I'm trying to finish for this week because I'm trying to get more exposure and more experience on my CV so that MFA applications go a little better next year (aka, I get accepted somewhere). For some reason, I've been procrastinating and I don't even know why. I hate that feeling. I know that I need to do these applications to get into any shows, and I also know that I need to do some hardcore work and planning for the show I have coming up at the end of the summer. I want to finish around 6-8 new, large works and those take time. I want the quality to be good, of course, and I want to get them framed. All this translates into the fact that I need to get to work.
Doing this blog definitely helps. For new ideas I'm constantly looking at different sources, for instance, the one of the lady with the flowery beehive was inspired by this. These sources of inspiration help me think of more concrete ideas for my show. The next step is just doing the work. Easier said than done, but hopefully next week I'll have something started and be on my way toward being more productive. Fingers crossed?
