Being an artist is a beautiful and immensely frustrating vocation. There are highs when you feel like you've "figured it out" and all of your fears are soothed by the prospect of a really clever and beautiful idea. Then there are the lows where you find that all the pieces of a great project are falling apart like a house of cards. The ebb and flow of creativity is maddening.
Clearly, I'm in a little bit of a dark place.
Anyway, I find that collages can be extremely therapeutic. There's something really redeeming about gluing scraps together. I highly recommend it if you ever find yourself in an artistically dark place.
