Renewed Spirit

Conversations with Myself #1
papers, acrylic paint

When I was in college, I had a professor who told me that the best way to solve a problem when you are stuck is to walk away, do something else for a while, then come back to the issue with fresh eyes.

Yesterday morning I looked at the collages from earlier in the week --- the ones that I thought were a total loss --- and I immediately saw possibilities. I continued layering blocks of color with papers, then added final touches with acrylic paints. Now I am very pleased with them. What a difference a new day, a renewed spirit, and a fresh look make!
