Good Morning! Coffee at the right! Waiting for packages of books today, that will help with research, some books are reference books for the studio. I have plans to develop a new type of Shibui. This research will create new problem-solving skills.
My research regarding the brain, in part, is to understand the problem solving within the creative process. I think I am not asking the right questions to get the answers I want. That is what research teaches. Research is not scanning, it’s taking the time to read. It is making notes. It is looking for others who can help answer questions. It is also having patience with the self, to begin and end, to follow through. It is knuckling under and having a mindset. It is knowing that if you are consistent, at some point things will avalanche. it is keeping goals in mind and breaking them down into smaller goals. This requires one’s best efforts.
At some point, I will have breakthroughs. I am encouraged by what is happening with one of my instructors, Julia Baker Waite. Her work is different than mine, it is exciting to see.
