I made peace with What Is a couple of years ago, but it's a process.
I fluctuate. Mostly going with the scattered chaotic flow. Other times, like now, when I'm bursting at the seams with ideas, I fight it hard and find myself on the verge of tears at the lack of just a freakin' 15 minutes without interruption. I pretend the gathering dust and dishes don't exist, because there are priorities and only one of me.
I know I'm not alone. And art is happening.....

How do you develop your work?
I tend to be the throw-material-unto-surface-and-see-what-happens type of artist. But occasionally, and only in recent times, I have been drawn to details. And details sometimes require forethought.
I resist it and resist it, and after frustration at not seeing what's in my head manifest...... I surrender. This work wants focus. This work demands slow. This work asks me for gentleness.
Often what we do is habit of an innate nature, but we have many potentials within us, if we're willing to give them a chance.
