On the edge, continually

I’ve entered a new stage in my work: when something needs ‘redoing“, is dull or faded, needs some spice, instead of painting into it as it is, I do an entirely new idea on top, keeping what didn’t quite work. It works! And it is more exciting than just trying to make something ”better“.

It is also a bit like jumping off a cliff, don’t know where I will land, especially when something is good but not great and just needs a little tweaking. But then, it is never okay to settle for good when it could be great. Even if it doesn’t become great, at least I try.
