I think even abstract artist go through this. It's the stage where we all want to trash what we've worked on because it's not 'there' yet.
When I started quilting, a very wise lady said you have to enjoy the process as much (more?) than the product. I believe that is very true. I think that applies to a lot of things. Exercise for example..or art..
These are various shots of my new painting studio, with pieces of art in various stages, some in the 'ugly' stage some finished..
I love the process, at least in art-making. I like the slow, deliberate-ness of it. I was always amazed, when in art school at students who would spend hour upon hour on one painting, never breaking, just on and on.. I work a bit differently. On several at once, layer, study, let sit, dry, layer etc..
Good news as well I will soon be a member of this gallery, hopefully by May!
