Embracing the obvious

Sometimes, what I think of as the easy or obvious solution is actually the best solution. Earlier tonight, I reached a point with a work on paper where I was just shy of a resolution. I took a break, went back to it and still couldn't satisfy myself with the results. Walked away again, came back to it and started tinkering with it more. I needed a decisive mark or series of marks to finish the piece off. The image making techniques that I'd used for the majority of the piece were not going to work for the final layer. I finally stopped avoiding the "obvious" and got on with finishing the piece with the "easy" solution...and it worked.

It was a relief because I'd spent so much time trying to find a way around the obvious solution that I think that I gave myself a dull, throbbing headache in the process.

That's all (for now...)

I don't know if I've mentioned it on this blog, but this summer I had a studio intern for the first time. Her name is Caitlin and she's a student at Moore College of Art entering her senior year. I was approached by a friend of Caitlin's who asked if I would be interested in having a studio intern. I wasn't sure at first because I'd never had an intern in the past and didn't know what I'd have them do. However, once I thought about it a bit, I realized that I did have a project, which was beginning the process of cataloging the works in my studio, starting with the works on paper.

Today was Caitlin's final day as my studio intern. I'm a little bummed, but also very grateful for the wonderful job that she did this summer. At last count, we'd gotten to #1099. Most of the work was accomplished, but there's still a bunch left to be photographed and given inventory numbers.

Having Caitlin's help this summer was invaluable because she was instrumental in getting me to become much more organized with my work. Organizing and documenting the work in the studio had been on my mind for a while and having Caitlin there moved the process from idea to full-on reality in a very short time. I'm very good at procrastination and I would not be even close to where I am now without her help. Thanks, Caitlin!!
