As I develop my 5th portrait I’m also looking back at the process. The act of documenting the various steps along the way can be tedious. But I’m relieved with how simple it actually is, the challenge is remembering to take a picture before moving on. This project (a series of 9) began late in May, and today marks 3 months thus far. I’m glad to be in the studio and doing it. I believe not having a real deadline has increased my patience… I have an end time in mind, but I am welcoming the in between decision making and leaving room for intuition.
This piece is still in progress, and with each step (3 pictured) I have been motivated to keep going.
