Craftsmanship and Creativity
Are very different in the amount of energy they take from me. The creative episodes, when I work on a painting, can be very exhausting and I need some kind of treat for myself once I am done with it.
Believe it or not but I can relax the best with even more work. Woodwork :-) I am always looking forward to dedicate a full day after a long painting session to building a nice frame for the painting. My mind can relax while I do that...I know exactly what to do and so the craft is very different from the creative process. That's really refreshing.
Now I can start another painting tomorrow ;-)
A good frame gives a painting the last touch...
...now I can't wait to find a nice place for them!
In case that you have missed my post from yesterday...I made a nice little progress documentation about this piece. You can look at this HERE.

“Skill without imagination is craftsmanship and gives us many useful objects such as wickerwork picnic baskets. Imagination without skill gives us modern art.”
Upvoting & resteeming makes me happy and keeps my art alive :-)
