Ill be quite honest, I haven't done much work this week.
Things have been crazy at school and I feel like I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off. And to top it all off, I managed to catch a cold over the weekend, so I feel like someone has stuffed cotton balls in my face.
I have been doing a lot of thinking, even though I don't have anything tangible to show for it. Mostly I've been thinking about how large I want to make the pieces I have planned out. Part of me wants to go back to making larger works, but as of right now I have no place to store them. I'm just not sure how well what I have planned will read as a larger piece, although I am afraid that the same plan would make a smaller piece feel cluttered. On the other hand, a small, highly detailed work would take more time, but if executed correctly, could be stunning.
I'm also undecided with composition. I have so many ideas running through my head that I can't settle on just one. And unfortunately, my indecision on composition is tied to my indecision about size, so my mind keeps turning in circles.
I have to make a decision soon though. I found an opportunity for a show and entries are due in mid-March. It'd be great to have something ready by then.
I think that I am going to take some time this week and make small paper samples to determine if my plans are doable or not. Of course, then it may be back to the drawing board, but such is life.
