There was a moment when I thought I wouldn't finish this piece.
This happens to me when I feel I know exactly where a piece is going and there will be no more surprises.
From this piece I learnt that I can find my way back into the work if I re-focus on the process.
When I do this, the piece gathers new impetus, the creative fire is kindled and, yes, there are more surprises to be enjoyed.
This is one of my 'talisman' works - a piece that teaches me something profound about myself as an artist.
Now I just need to figure out how not to forget the lesson!
