"going out and doing new work is what drives our creative juices. Printing is interesting to the extent it must be mastered, which is challenging. However, once mastered the process becomes somewhat boring, and then rote. Maybe that is why we like alternative processes. True mastery of many of these processes is illusive, and fraught with surprise."Ahh the lost efforts. Is this love's labor lost?
Is not the idea of past negatives (think of all the bad times constantly given us in the daily news)
and the delight in the realization that actually one was up to something . . something with meaning
and integrity, wit and intelligence. But, hey, don't toss 'em into a pile, and, hey, boring? That is a
naughty word is it not? We have but one life and my POV is to record it. Oh, gosharooty, yes, but
I am behind (and that is growing as well) with printing my work but, dang, it continues to stream
like the very consciousness itself. I work in a Joycean manner where things of description are made
up all the time. Nothing is old but the negative and I'm making positive changes daily.
