Then I realized after posting the mixed media piece last week , that I have a piece like that I'd started and then put away.
I guess it's a bad habit - starting too many pieces, or having several pieces in different stages. My reason is that I need time to digest the stages, and decide what the piece needs next.
But then my space is so small (it is my Little Studio after all....) that I then feel crowded, and I have to store/put away so I don't feel overwhelmed or under-focused. And then the old saying 'out of sight, out of mind' kicks in. But I remembered it, and decided to try to finish it. Getting there!
