Spread 210 – Walk Away June 5, 2013

Posted by Orly in Uncategorized.

210-Walk AwayBefore I walk away from an old story to walk into a new one I should know that story with great clarity. I should know that story so well until I am sick of it. Then and only then I can create a new one. It will still contain components of the old but it will not be controlled by them, nor will it be controlled by me. It should take me to where it wants to go as if it’s an unruly dog on my leash. I should allow this to happen if I want my story to be plentiful, passionate, and to be made of other fascinating and mysterious elements. I believe it to be true about all stories and their owners, especially about the visual ones and their makers.

These are words to live by, especially as work on revising some old stories of my own…

It is interesting how conversations become inspiration. This is lovely and wise, oh lovely and wise one.

I am so thankful that you create stories. I looked at this piece for a long time and all of a sudden the stage appeared. I had been focusing on the face I found near the stag’s eye and not the stag. Thanks for this morning’s journey.

Wonderful spread Orly! So many places to get lost in and such mystery.

Well said, and this one looks cool! I raised both eyebrows looking at it.

What also comes to mind from “walk away” is to leave an art journal spread, and come back to it later. Sometimes a page or spread isn’t always finished at once, or on the same day. It’s okay to pause and resume if need be.
