Sometimes I need to take a little break from the monotony of the larger pieces & have a little time to reflect & experiment. This is hard to make myself do because I have so little time to work as it is, I feel like I always need to be working towards a finished piece. But I have to remember that the time I take to “play” a bit is still creative, & still works towards the final goal. Also that in the end my larger pieces greatly benefit from it. Here are a couple of smaller pieces in the works. They might become finished pieces themselves, or they might end up in the scrap heap… either way they teach me to be more spontaneous & playful with ideas.
