Living as close to the coast as I do, invariably the nighttime sky is clouded over, hence I never get to see sky events ~ meteor showers, full moons, eclipses when they're visible in the Pacific Northwest. Oh well.
Making this piece that I really love has done a lot to build my confidence. I spent all day yesterday working on it and enjoyed every minute of it.
One of the difficulties I've had in my artistic endeavors has been in trying to be too literal ~ the reverse of which could be summed up as not realizing I have an imagination I can put to use, if I'd only exercise it. So I tend to be thrown to trying to replicate reality in some way, rather than fiddling around with elements regardless of whether the product might be wacky and unreal. Who cares whether it's "real" or not? Nobody.
As Jude said in a comment to my last post, it's enough to just enjoy it.
