In Robin Atkins‘ latest book, Heart to Hands Bead Embroidery, there is a page about working in series. Robin wrote “With each piece, we become more confident. With each piece, we learn more about how to express our beliefs, concerns, and experiences in life. With each piece, our technical skills increase. With each piece, our visual voice becomes stronger and more unique.“
Inspired by those words, I began to cut out the felt shapes for my third and final DeLorean time machine. This car is a slightly different angle than the last, and the door is closed. The felt measures about 10″ wide. It is my intention that this car will represent the stage at which Einstein returns from his time-traveling adventure – the third part of my beaded trilogy.
After beading the first two DeLoreans, I am confident that this one will take less time to complete! I also feel that my technical skills are increasing, but I feel that I am still learning about how to express my ideas & beliefs…
What has working in series taught you about how you create art?
