You’ve probably been wondering what happened to my Art Every Day Month project. So have I. I just took too long to get started and then lost my motivation to work on it. Today I even thought about completely throwing in the towel. I just couldn’t fill out the elements of me into such a rigid structure. It all felt forced.
Then, while I was walking the dog, I came up with a new idea for my periodic table – My Tools! This is something I can get into. I can fit them into a more rigid structure, I can pick and choose which ones to include. I can get my motivation back to work on this project.
I turned the table upside down to kind of look like a workbench. The two rows at the top are for my hammers and the rest of the tools are loosely grouped in the big table. Now I just need to cut out the blocks and make the images for the squares and glue it all together.
I also worked in the studio today and made three cuffs and a pinky ring. On Sunday I cut the bezels off of my fourth collar and turned the remainder into a stone-less collar. I like the way it turned out.
