Obviously, to an artist, the environment in which your work is displayed and sold is critical to your success. I’m happy to say that we will be in the same place as we were for the holiday event — in a beautiful, spacious, sun-filled building right next to Playhouse on Park in West Hartford.
I always find it to be a little bit of a dilemma — do I bring the type of gourds that have always been popular, and run the risk of being boring, or do I branch out into new approaches and risk losing the enthusiasm of people who are used to seeing more of the same?
As in all things, there’s no black and white solution — creatively we have to live in the middle, play both ends, and hope for the best! I have learned that when I create new things, and re-create the tried and true pieces (such as the bowls you see in the photo above), when I feel happy and inspired, it adds to the flow and decreases my anxiety about what I “should” be producing. Have you experienced the same thing?
