Is it an unrealistic expectation to hold that a piece will go from my head right down to being completed in a smooth process? Sometimes I just wish it would happen, but for me it is still necessary to live with a piece over time and even after I declare "finished", sometimes it isn't and not to mention the bumps in-between.
I made changes to Stanza. After seeing it hang in 2 exhibits it just didn't hang right. It had that "oh what a creative placemat" feel. It is such a challenge to display small pieces. They lack weight. Stanza is now wrapped around a frame and I'm loving it again.

The other piece will become a 6x12, a series of pieces that I attach to a 6"x12" frame. In addition to being fun to make, these have been the pieces that sale for me.
Wednesday is typically my rest day and I have a mild fibro-flare in my upper arms, but I'm feeling eager to get going so I'll show up and see what happens. Peace.
