maybe i know

Maybe I know what I'm working with. Wish I was more certain, have a solo show in April and try not to think of the short time.

Instead I tell myself: keep calm, have fun, try something new, look for what's there. And I had fun today. Maybe I have an idea.

Wire work by Marie Christophe
Found via Dear Ada who wrote kindly of my work yesterday. A happy coincidence, a neighbor ceramic post with the work by my real neighbor Karin Östberg.

it's not too, too, close. and your advice to yourself is working- you had a good day today. I hope many more, now.

visst är det ett besvärligt läge när man är osäker och inte vet hur eller vad det ska bli. Extra jobbigt med tidsbrist. För mig är det alltid svårt precis på slutet, då får jag värsta paniken och har svårt att tro att jag ska klara av att göra klart. Nu har jag ju läst din blogg ett tag och antar att du är lite sportig (iallafall dina barn) och då kanske du jobbar bra på upploppet?
Lycka till med både ideér och utförande!

Bibbi, I am always most productive just when the deadline is very close.
Becauase then I don´t have time to be uncertain and hesitating.

Bibbi said...

Thank you all for supporting words!

Yes, being brave is a big part of it, and so is focus. Finding time, too!

Manuetude, thank you for telling me where to find me!

Bibbi- I know that feeling you describe, of worrying about the time to prepare for a show. But to encourage you, there IS time between now and April, long months of time, and you have an idea. That's great! Your work is truly original and wonderful, you WILL be ready.

Hej Bibbi!
Lika bra och inspirerande som vanligt, glad att du finns här ute i cyber space! Har lagt till några av dina grejer på min blogg + din bloggadress...
Usch jag vet vad du känner (typ), jag ska också ha en soloutställning i april och jag inser att jag gör ALLT annat än fokuserar på just att arbeta med den.
Ha det gött och keep up the good work!

Trevlig helg...
Nu drar ju stora kulturevenemanget igång, och fy vad det stressar mig... Jag har ännu inte öppnat filmprogrammet och vet inte om jag kommer att göra det heller.

Bibbi said...

Tack alla! Thank you all! Everything you say should be written in big letters on studio wall, as daily reminders.

Your: "Manuetude, thank you for telling me where to find me!"

This is the best funny line of the day!

Sounds like you have a lot of work to do: may it flow with grace!

I'm sure your show will be a huge success. We all have days when we're not feeling creative or fully present in our work. Then the next day might bring inspiration and we're back in the spirit and creative state to make it happen. Bonne chance et bonne courage!
