Coming down the home stretch on this one. I don't like to show works in progress,
but this is so close. I was moved by Amy Hillenbrand's shots of the development
of her painting of orchids. I liked her brave discussion of the middle part in creating
a painting, when you can't see the end. And I love what Elizabeth Gilbert said in her
book Big Magic about fear being allowed to come along for the ride, and how fear could have
sandwiches, but fear would not get to drive, and fear would not get to give advice.
So brilliant. At this point I can see where I'm going, and fear is not on the journey
anymore. (Probably out hitchhiking). So I don't mind showing you how it's going.
I will of course give you all the details when it's done.
Have a taking the driver's seat day.
