Over the past few months I have had many conversations with people, listened to talks, sat in workshops (virtually) and I keep coming back to these things:
1) You need to be honest with yourself and your work to make successful work
2) You must embraced your weaknesses, acknowledge, accept, and understand them to be able to work with them not against them
3) Things happen at the right time if you are open to them.
This paper piece “Pro Crast I nation” I did as part of my MA work over a decade ago, but it keeps popping into my head, and into conversations recently therefore I am drawn to explore it once again.
I procrastinate, it is part of me, so how can I embrace it to become a positive? I also love the process of making, so why not use my procrastination and enjoyment of process together? Instead of working on finishing paintings, I am going to embrace these two things till the end of of the month and see what I have. I am doing this by continuing to layer ans work on the paintings I have at the moment started but procrastinated to not finished.
