It is sometimes hard for me not to start too many collections at once.
This is not because my subjects do not keep me enthralled. It is because I find so many things captivating and believe they all should be celebrated. I mitigate this tendency by creating lists and taking notes when project ideas pop into my head. This allows me to save the new ideas to explore later without derailing my current groove. Above is my new shiny green coffee mug. It will probably end up in a still life someday, after I’m done exploring the birch trees that still have so much to show me.
Do you have special ways you maintain your focus? If so I would love to hear about them below in the comments.
