After an entire morning of being locked out of the internet by inclement weather, I am up and anxious to post a guitar. It is strange how it has become so much a part of my routine that it throws me out of kilter until I get the job done. Of course, to my knowledge, I have never actually been “in kilter” so that may be a moot point.
Anyway, after complaining loudly and roundly about the white plaster guitar form, I discovered, as is often the case when I get to complaining about things, that it was not the actual form, but my perspective that was being so annoying. I found black gesso and gave the entire piece a coating, and in so doing, discovered that the creative block I was experiencing vis-a-vis (which I only throw in because I can) this thing was that I had focused on the preformed expectations. I was instantly transported when I turned it over to a whole new world of possibility. Now I want to make more of them…I have plans. Life is good again.
