The Enamelist Society catalog is done. Now what? This project has consumed most of my spare time for the past several months and now I’m trying to figure out what in the world to do with myself. Oh yeah, I think I have a metals studio downstairs that I’ve ignored for a while. Perhaps I should re-aquaint myself with it.
Trouble is that I’m not motivated to work in my studio. I don’t have any shows scheduled for the fall and my only pressing work is filling gaps in my inventory, which is boring. I do have a couple of ideas for some granulated pieces, but I’m not in any hurry to start on them. As usual, I’m in a rut. See, the problem is that I really enjoyed getting back into graphic design and I’m not ready to give up the project. I need another 80-page catalog to land in my lap so I can design and execute that. Anyone need a catalog done? Anyone?
I know I’ll get back into the swing of things in my studio. Until then, I’m going to make myself go downstairs every day and at least start a piece or two. What usually happens is that I become involved working on production pieces and come up with ideas for something else to make. Basically, I’m going to kick myself in the butt until I get my groove back. Yeah, that should work!
