Carol: “Coming up with ideas and designs is so easy compared to figuring out how to execute them!”
The job of artists in creating new work that informs, inspires, delights and delivers is fraught with learning curves. To constantly challenge oneself is inherent in any creative field; artists rarely settle in to a comfortable middle ground. To do so would threaten that their work becomes mere production, mere doing. The learning curve of introducing new techniques, new ideas or new strategies is key.
Gene: “I’m not sure how to do this. I’m going to figure out a way.”
Liz: “It’s funny: even the pieces I thought would be simple in their execution are posing challenges. Mirrors the times we are living in, I suppose. That or I’m on a slow steady decline.”
