My fall welding class final critique was last night. I enjoy discussing other artists' motivations and ideations. Mine is pure ascetics. What feels balanced, inspired. What feels good. I get a vision or an idea, and then I just go. fast, furious. I am the multi-tasker in the shop; cutting, grinding, welding, baking - all at the same time. It is a symphony of art creation. It is the balance of creativity and efficiency. Perhaps my day job still is too much of an influence - Rewarded for producing work. I dream about a future where there are no deadlines or expectations and I can slow the process down and give myself time to push and explore my creativity.
