They say you sometimes have to step away from your Art and come back to it later in order to really see it. The process of creation can put you too deeply into the piece itself, until you can’t see the forest for the trees. Tonight I put Part 1 out on the table. I was stunned to think that I designed it on April 30, stitched it May 1st through 31st, and in June the country was doing the very thing I had stitched. 😳
I told Wyatt that I was kind of afraid to keep going! LOL I have manifested some serious shit this year, and I certainly don’t want to manifest any more of this Art project’s warning. In fact, that was the whole point. This series is meant to be a cautionary tale. The Mirror Project: See Yourself is precisely about what can happen if we don’t take a good hard look at what we are doing, and where we are headed.
And as I sat back down in the recliner, picking up my stitching frame that holds Part 4, I noticed that I lost yet another needle in my surroundings. Then I looked at the rapidly growing piece on my Q-Snap. All of those faces staring back at me... I wonder how I will decide to release this project to the world? Instagram? Facebook? My Art blog? Does it even matter?
Eventually I will finish this fourth piece in the series, and all of them will be shared with the public in some fashion. Some people will love them, and some people will be very disturbed. I truly do not care. All I know is that these images were given to me. Far worse have come through, and I still might create them in a different medium. Who knows? But this story is necessary. This is important. And I have total peace about this process.
For the first time in my life I know exactly what I was meant to do. And I am doing it.
