(Feeling) Fear

Three and a half months of slow and steady progress – (Feeling) Fear is finally complete!

As this year’s production has slowed, creating these fiber art pieces has become an opportunity to be more contemplative, contributing to my personal growth as I construct each one.  I seem to choose the feeling to create that I most need to understand and process in the moments it takes to make my art.  To state that more clearly, every time I step into my studio to work on the fiber feeling, I give mental focus to the actual feeling and how it impacts me and my life.  As a result, I discover the ways the feeling is serving me and where it is holding me back from achieving my goals.

Through my art making process, I am learning to find solutions within my feelings.  What more could one want from their creative life?

What have you learned from your creative efforts?

Constructive criticism and comments are always welcome.  Please share your thoughts!

Info about my Feelings series: I interpret my random abstract doodles as emotions.  The guiding point is the outer boundary of the doodle.  The boundary evokes the feeling.  From there, I contemplate how to bring that particular feeling alive in fiber.
