I watched the video, was cool when she said, Ok, here I'm going to let this dry for a few minutes, and decide what to do next.
Except then the video ended, and she never did anything next. What the heck!
Jane, come back! You've left me high and dry!
Well, in fact, she had not left me high and dry. The blooper was entirely mine. I'd left me high and dry! I'd forgotten the written part of the lesson, which I did read at the start of the lesson but lost track of somewhere en route. Sure could have spared myself some internal friction had I remembered it.
Weeks later, and after three challenging iterations of the assignment, what did I bump into?
The written lesson.
So I took me to my studio and made me a totally fun fourth abstract landscape collage.
Actually I didn't make me the landscape. I made Chloe the landscape.
Happy birthday, Chloe!
