Juggling Projects

The Liminal Project
I think I have art ADHD, I have so many projects on the go at once - at least there is no time to get bored!

I have more talismans in the works and I started the larger 2' x 3' painting over the weekend and it is coming along great, but needs some more layers.  You can also see in the background of the above photo, there is a board (60 x 80cm, roughly 2'x3') being prepped with texture, ready for another boundaries painting.

As well as the talismans and the large boundaries piece, I sketched out my design for the embroidery piece for the Liminal Project (which is part of a larger work, Embroidered Digital Commons, a long-term collaborative project started in 2002), now I have the fun task of choosing colours.

I rather like the variety of all these projects - they are all different, yet tie in to each other in some way, so although my output may seem scattered, it is, in fact, quite focused.

People claim I'm busy, but I think you have MANY more irons in the fire. I'm excited to see all of these pieces as they evolve.

This really made me laugh - I'm so glad I'm not alone in my madness. I think it's called CADHD (just add creative to the 'norm')!

It has always been this way for me, I am too old to change now, lol.

You are sure not alone! I think it's part of our nature to like many forms of creativity. The embroidery project intrigues me.
