I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions. I have never resolved to lose weight or join a gym. However goals for my art are different.
Finish the commission that has been hanging around for multiple years. It should have 5 – 10 hours left in it.
Finish the Dream Scroll. Also close to being finished. I need to line the back of the of the scroll then finish the construction of the scroll proper.
Do more textile art than I did last year.
>Write this blog, once a week, even when I don’t have finished work.
One of my pleasures this year will be reading ‘Stitch Stories: Personal Places, Spaces and Traces in Textile Art’ by Cas Holmes. I enjoyed ‘The Found Object in Textile Art’ by Cas Holmes. Each textile artist has their own process, a good book gives you insight into that process. Copying process in its entirety is as bad as copying art for the artist. But you can’t construct your own process without learning new techniques. I do that more that by reading and considering if I want to try specific techniques on my own, than by taking classes. Often I don’t have the money or the energy for classes.
