Seagrove, North Carolina
I am a forward looking person. I am more interested in the future and what is going to happen next than to looking backwards at what I have done. I’m also an impatient type of person that wants to get to the future so I can enjoy it.
When I finish one of my projects, I really don’t give it too much of a thought. I want to move on to the next project on my list. (Wait, you say, “You have a list of projects you plan to create?” In response I say, “Of course I have a list of projects. I also have them prioritized.”) This is the residue of an engineering education. We tend to over-organize.
This facet of my character probably should be toned down a bit from a creative standpoint. Looking backward can be valuable because you might discover things like an unfinished project that you completely forgot about because you became infatuated with another image or two. You also might find an “undiscovered project” made up of those square peg images that might have something in common you never thought about. Mining old images might be interesting because if you are working on something subconsciously you just might need the advantage of time or distance to clearly see a new project.
Scroll Down the Blog a bit and look for the posts from earlier this week. I finally posted them this morning.
