It's so funny to me now to reflect on the progress of this whole piece. I've always known this (and didn't want to admit it of course) that I can only do one thing right at a time and if I'm doing art, nothing else can enter my focus.
But alas, when you're in today's world, you need to find a way to somehow make a camera be a part of your studio work. And so the first layer of this piece, even though it looked rather beautiful - for a first layer - I managed to get gold dust sprinkled evenly across it right at the very end 🙈😜 I thought, "Who cares? I always do at least two layers and it'll add interest that way, this gold dust!" I also learned from the first-layer-recording trial that I should avoid certain outfits to film in and so I reached for my favorite coveralls, only to find out that these babies had so much darn lint stuck to them that I only learnt about it when it all got lifted into the air and started making its way towards my piece.
So I'm glad that I got at least some recording done because 3rd (and maybe 4th or 5th?) layers will be just for me, just for the heart. Nothing will be distracting me; I'll be in my pure blissful element in my studio as usual 🥰
So please give me grace as I'm feeling my way through it all 💓
