Book Arts

Some time ago I made my first book sculpture. Recently I had it photographed professionally for a show entry. Love these photos!

 

Makes me want to curl up with a good book!

Perfection.....or not?

Well, I've been struggling a bit with letting go....letting go and of making things just right....you know, ...perfection.

It's kind of funny, really, because I don't really care if many things are perfect, but the more I delve into the world of art, the more I seem to be looking for perfection. I find myself wanting to discard things that I think aren't perfect, I find myself being more and more critical of the work I am doing.

SOOOOOOOO, I need to let go. I need to breathe and accept. I need to explore the possibilities. If something isn't exactly to my liking, what if it were allowed to become something else? This is what I am striving for, this is my new goal for my art.
