Work in Progress

Sometimes, when I look at the shelf next to my art tables, I think, "Ack! Ack! Too many unfinished projects!"

The horizontal binders on the bottom shelf in this photo contain the pencil sketches, line art, paintings and rejects from my finished smallbooks.

The vertical ones are stuffed with unfinished projects, and they outnumber the others at least two-to-one. Years and years of work lie ahead. Sometimes the sight of it sends me into a nice little anxiety attack. Other times, I feel like patting those binders and purring. They remind me of a well-stocked kitchen cupboard: full of possibilities.

The grey boxes are old tax files, necessary but boring. No need to talk about those!
