I think that every artist needs to experiment. When play loses its place in the life of an artist, I believe that the artwork suffers. Perhaps I'd forgotten this. These past few weeks, I have been so caught up in building a portfolio, making artwork that has a purpose, and comparing myself to other artists, that I've failed to just make things for the sake of making them.
So, earlier this week, I started a piece that didn't mean anything. It was just fun to look at and fun to make. This is the design that resulted...a playful little piece that exists happily in its own simplicity.
