Argle Bargle or Fooferall?

There’s a weird emotional fluctuation that goes with creating stuff (art, crafts, whatever) – the highs of everything coming out just as you wanted, and the lows of doubting all previous decisions when what comes out isn’t what you were hoping, including your decision to do art in the first place. Usually when the later happens I try to distance myself from the final piece – put it away – not think about it for a while. Or at least, not look at it for a while. On the plus side, the more you do ANY kind of activity, the more you learn, and the better you get – so even if the goal is blah, the process can still be valuable – a grand rationalization, no? And where do you draw the line between ‘practice’ and ‘public’ art? And when do you draw the line? Probably NOT when you’re busy NOT looking at something. Well… while all that’s going on, might as well keep busy with creating more stuff and keep the cycle going – heh.
