Another leap. I’ve learned something with each piece I’ve done lately, whether about the medium, composition, or the choices I get to make. This piece taught me a thing or two about pacing and waiting the piece out – it will tell you what it wants to happen. My favorite parts (and by that I mean the most successful to me) diagonal lines, a roller coaster on stilts, tea cup smoke, that little signature at the end of the orange diagonal (not mine) and the chalk at the end. It is pretty exhilarating to take a white piece of chalk and make a mark on a piece thought to be finished – and trust that it is not only the right thing to do, but to have the faith that it is the best thing to do.
