I've decided to work on my problem with preciousness by doing a collage a day and limiting myself to 45 minutes to do each. The time constraint, oddly, is very postive. I didn't expect to really finish or come up with anything terrific. Instead I look at this process like target practice, some days I'll get a bullseye and most days I won't and thats OK, I just keep working. But looking at the clock has made me trust my first instinct and thats an improvement! These aren't a command performance (as my mother would say) but I like them and will continue the experiment. They don't have paint because set-up is part of the 45 minutes and I don't have enough time. But they seem OK without it.
