In my studio I have two long tables set at right angles. This is how they look right now.
This is a large box filled with paper scraps. Maybe only another collager could groke this mess. Or someone who sews and has piles of material scraps. These piles also reflect the state of my mind right now. A melange of conflicting ideas and thoughts. A confusion.
Ah, this table looks a tad more orderly. I glued in items on 5-6 pages, first layers, this weekend. Working in book form you have to wait for the glue to dry on one page before gluing on another. I sometimes place wax paper on top of a wet page though so I can move on. But usually I let the page dry first.
I vacationed from blogland this weekend. I felt very tired and mostly read a novel, sitting in the sunny window, gazing out over the pond. I am slightly moved to create a poem, but not moved enough to get words on paper. Funny how much energy creativity needs.
Do you find it hard to be creative when you are tired? Or does being tired and overwhelmed just drive you all the more strongly to the easel, the page?
