I have been making some bookmark paintings lately. Here is just an example of one. I find the smaller scale less intimidating. Painting is helping me learn about colors and I love that I can usually paint over my mistakes. It is a little more forgiving than my glass beads.
I am still looking for the inspiration to get back to my torch. I may have found a challenge today that will give me that extra drive I need to get to the torch. I also am trying to decide if I want to take a week long class, so I need to get my skills back up. I haven't made a bead since December.
Question to consider: Do you find smaller scale projects less intimidating? I have been putting off getting new curtains and blinds for the living room, because it seems like such a large project. I really struggle with how permanent larger things are. I wonder if that is just because of the extra time investment.
