Who knew that creating a body of work would in essence be stirring up a hornet's nest of controversy with a professor? Again. I cannot seem to go through a semester without pissing off at least one teacher. This semester the chosen one is my ceramics teacher. I sometimes wonder if I'm projecting something into the atmosphere that brings these situations back on myself. I mean here we are at another semester, and I'm already taking punches from another professor along the lines of....."not relevant" or "cliched" or "not taking this class seriously enough"..... I just seem to set people off. And why??!! I keep pushing forward to complete this journey and I keep hitting roadblocks. It's frustrating and discouraging. And honestly...it's been the biggest disappointment with school.
Anyhow, enough with the pity party. I will continue to project positivity outward and hopefully it will start coming back to me. I'm posting photos of my ongoing work. The assignment was self portrait and I decided to deconstruct my emotions (roller-coaster that it's been) and sculpt characters. I'm allowing myself to get lost in the project and just create. And I'm remembering to have fun in the moment and enjoy myself. That's what art is supposed to be about. And let the fun begin....
That's it for this week. Some days its hard to remember what day it is and where I'm supposed to be. I'm tired mostly. And with the drama of ceramics....
I need to let it go. Like now. It's not solving anything and I'm letting someone else's negativity overpower my process. Done and sorry about that. Moving on... :) Have a good week everyone. Do something nice for someone. Hell....do something nice for me if you see me (and happen to have read this!) :))
