91-100/365 Catching UP
February derailed me. I put a lot of computer time into the Super Bowl and TURF:IDADA Art Pavilion (which was actually part of the Super Bowl events) then promptly got sick. Also, I am rather disheartened right now because I feel like my photography has stagnated. I remember taking a watercolor course a long time ago and although I don’t do watercolor today, one piece of advise the instructor mentioned has stuck with me for all these years. She effectively said, “You will get to a point in your watercolor when you know it isn’t done but you don’t know what else to do because you’ve done everything you know how to do. This is when you start pushing in colors and working through this stuck phase. Don’t give up. It will look like there is nothing else you can do but if you keep working on it, suddenly it becomes the watercolor you envisioned.” I’ve kept this in mind all these years. It’s not just with watercolor, it’s with life. Right now I feel disheartened and I feel like I’m stuck, but I’m pushing through and working on things, even if my photographs are bland and mundane. And hopefully, one day my photographs will suddenly become what I envisioned.
Anyway, I’m catching up with February’s images in this single post and hopefully will be back on track.
