I don''t know if most creative types are this way, but I find that I have waaaay too many ideas for the amount of hours in a day. And they all seem cool, and I want to do them all. It's a challenge not to try them all. But what I really find is that I want to try so much stuff, I end up not knowing where to begin and 8 million projects get started, but nothing ever gets finished.
Diversity is good, right? Getting stuck on one thing over and over again (like the blue dog) would drive me insane, plus I think it would be really dull for my clients/fans (although, the blue dog guy doesn't seem to be hurting for sales, so maybe there is a lesson for me there...).
But you can see it in our websites, we have **tons** of different products, different techniques, different everythings. We have:
- Jewelry - http://glasssculpture.org/artglass/jewelry/
- Reverse Glass Paintings - http://glassnebula.com/
- Paperweights - http://glasssculpture.org/artglass/paperweights/
- Wine Stoppers - http://glasssculpture.org/artglass/wine-stoppers/
- Huge glass sculptural stuff - http://glasssculpture.org/
and there is a lot more too... sigh.... So what I've noticed since the awful sink project got canceled is that my head has opened up to creativity again, and along with it, more ideas than I can possibly ever have time to make.
Good thing? Bad thing? What is your experience? I can tell you one thing, it sure feels nice being excited about making **anything** again. Being in that sink-hole was awful.
