Okay, so on Friday I went over to Megan Chapman's Blog, to read her weekly post.
When I got there, I was a little surprised at what I saw...
She had posted several of her early works, and I was completely floored because they all looked so similar to my work. It's seriously creepy, but in a good way! :D
So I thought I would post some of my earlier works as well. You can see the all here, on my Flickr page.
These are pretty similar, but, I have several paintings at home in Portland, that I swear are pretty much identical...I wish I had some photos of them.
Anyway, looking at some of my earlier work has really made me think about my work now, and the direction it's going...
I will admit that I am really confused about where it is going.
I really enjoy some aspects of my early work, but I also really enjoy many of the aspects of the work I am doing now. I love the drawing, and illustrating that I am doing, and I would love to continue that. I also love many of the collage elements that are going on in my earlier work.
I feel like I have so many ideas, and so many things that I want to do, and there just isn't enough time or energy in the day to do them all.
Sitting here looking at this work, and thinking about my current work is a bit frustrating.
Maybe I just need to go bigger. Like, 16x20" or 4'x4' or even bigger...
I sometimes just feel like I have no idea what the hell I am doing.
Oh well. Just under the four month mark before the big move, and I gotta stay focused.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday. :)
