Why is it that when I have so much work to do (painting, drawing, art assignments) I cannot wait until I finish them. But the moment I am done, I cannot wait to start again….
I am flicking through my sketchbooks, my art books, my paints and brushes and my hands itch me. I feel a re-birth of inspiration – is it because I feel more free? Or because I can have a fresh start…or is it because I can focus on one thing at a time…
University work gets very hard when I am supposed to focus on a lot of projects at once. I wish I can do one project for all my classes – and do it really well. A thorough research and enough time to implement it. I don’t understand how I must focus on everything at once (and it is not just a time matter). Do artists usually work like that? How can an unfocused mind produce good work. Is doing a lot of things at once making me better – or is it confusing me and making me more frustrated..(I hate it when thought such us “I can’t wait ‘till I finish this”… “Oh boy, I need to go back to painting”..I don’t like it at all when what I’m doing feels like a chore. It’s very saddening..
I wish I could feel this inspiration that I feel now when I work on many things at once. Is there a way to control it, and sprinkle it on all my projects? *sigh*..
There are many things that I want to improve in and there is never enough time – I can only work in steps and little by little continuously. The pressure is gone, summer is here and I am very excited and feel like a balloon filled with helium.
Today was the ‘Made in Tashkeel’ exhibition opening. I have submitted acrylic tanks with engraving that I’ve designed. For the first time I exhibit something that is three-dimensional and I am super pleased with how they’ve turned out. I’ve given it the title “chimes” because to me it looks like a sound. I love Tashkeel a lot and I am proud to be part of it, a second home for sure.
