Most of the time, your best work may be the stuff that you do for fun. You know, things that you create while you were just fooling around, experimenting with no pressure and with no specific outcome in mind. I really love these experimental found object characters by Emily Eldridge – I’m beginning to look at my cleaning tools in a whole new light now.

What kind of experiments have you done lately that you felt was a personal breakthrough? I’d love to see some show of hands – feel free to share (and link to it) in the comments!

  1. Yes, I have to say, doing stuff where you are just playing has led to some personal breakthroughs for me.

    A couple of examples are:
    1. http://www.girlmeetsart.com/project/sketching-with-thread/ as I was just playing around with fabric and learning to do free motion sewing

    2. http://www.girlmeetsart.com/project/art-of-improvisation/ a wax collage piece done while having to improvise with limited materials at hand during a workshop

    I have found that I make most of my breakthroughs when I have to work within limits: Of available materials, of subject matter, etc.
