Work the past few days: Update 6/7/2011

I got a bit of painting and sketching done the past couple of days, so I am pleased with that… but sometimes, I just turn out stuff that I don’t like. Well, I’m not liking it right now– but maybe it won’t be after I let it set for awhile and come back to it. Sometimes that tends to work. Among other projects, I’ve put quite a bit of hours into those dahlia paintings and at this point I am not pleased one iota. I must go back and try to rework them. Again.

On an upbeat note, I went and saw the Nick Cave exhibit, Journey to the center of the Earth, at the Seattle Art Museum– so that was a lot of fun– definitely thought-provoking and imaginative. It’s not what you’re expecting– and I’ll leave it at that.

These links are glimpses of what I saw, if you’re curious:

About Rachel Heu

"Creativity is an act of defiance. You're challenging the status quo. You're questioning accepted truths and principles. You're asking three universal questions that mock conventional wisdom: Why do I have to obey the rules? Why can't I be different? Why can't I do it my way?" --Twyla Tharp, The Creative Habit: Learn It and Use It For Life (pg. 133)
