LUTE 365 WEAVINGS / 101 - 200
I can’t believe that I have been doing this daily weaving project for over 200 days in a row. It seems crazy and to be completely honest, most of the time I feel crazy! Of course, there are still those days when I don’t want to be creative and come up with a clever “weaving” for the day, but I still just do it. I am so deep in it now that I simply cannot stop, because I would be so pissed with myself if I did. I’ve reached a point where I don’t care if the weaving for that day is really shitty or maybe not even technically considered a weaving.
I DON’T CARE.
I just have to keep going.
Ultimately, this project is about dedication. It’s about just putting in the damn work. That’s the hardest part isn’t it? We can all have great ideas and lofty goals, but when it comes down to it, you have to actually work. That’s really what this #lute365weavings thing is about. Work.
Through this, I have changed as well and in a much shorter time-frame. I’m glad I didn’t restrict myself by thinking I needed to exclusively become a tapestry weaver or a natural dyer. I let myself open up creatively and explore different mediums, which consequentially, has saved my art. And my sanity.
Change is inevitable in our lives. There is no difference creatively. I used to think that I needed one style, one medium and just make the same sort of stuff over and over again. That’s what will sell, right? That’s what having a job as an artist is like, right? Wrong. I now crave change and growth in my artistic practice. It's a truly liberating feeling.
I can’t wait to see day 300.
