Is it true that artists are only as good as their last work? No.
But this is how it often feels.
In reality what we might call a body of work stacks up – but if you have a poor memory this somewhat quiet process can begin to feel like a deathly hush.
This is probably why I took to Twitter yesterday – not exactly to blow my own trumpet – but to remind myself what I did.
What feels entirely true is that each time you end a piece of work, especially a complex multilayered project, you have to start from scratch to build the new work or project in development.
Patience is needed and stamina gathered – I’m still processing and filtering what I went through to get to all these places, and how to build a secure pathway through to the next adventure.
