I'll Never Be Bored Again
I think that one of the things I love most about metalsmithing and enameling are the limitless amounts of things that you can experiment with. Things never get dull or boring. The hardest part is luring myself into my studio area. I can think of a hundred things that I should do first... clean the kitchen (or actually any room in my house for that matter!), pay some bills, have something to eat, read the mail... Part of it is the fear of having to think or create something and what will it be? However, once in there if I can just get started on one thing, any one thing, it will lead me to another and another and another. It's like being a mad scientist and I can't stop. And then it's 2:00 in the morning and my eyes are burning. It's very satisfying!
