Dreaming and Working
I took a break from work the other day and I went for a walk in the street. I met two dogs in a park. One of them was a relatively big dog, who was really shy and the other one was a small one who turned out to be a real gangster :)
It reminded me of how deceiving appearances can be sometimes. For example, when people look at a piece of my art that saddens them, they believe I was depressed, too, when I made that piece. It can be true, but not necessarily. When you work on something that takes up a lot of time, you concentrate on your work.
You don't need to be sad through the whole time making it. As an artist, you always look at the "bigger picture" and not your momentary emotions. Sometimes you have to evoke those emotions to continue to work, but when it comes to craft, concentration is the most overwhelming sensation you encounter.
This is what I do with my work at the moment.
..I had a dream that I wanted to share with everyone, but I have been working on the realization of that dream for over one and a half years now. And believe me... I haven't been daydreaming the whole time :) But you will see the end result will very much be dream-like.
Keep dreaming and working!
