The hardest part (once I had enough courage to put a drawing into the piece, and determined the colors) has been the engineering. How do I get it to hang properly? This is a frequent challenge for me. I like to make art in odd shapes or with holes in it, or with several joined parts. Once the parts are made, they have to go together and hang straight (so I need geometry--yargh! and physics--yuck), areas where I have minimal knowledge and very limited mastery. If it's skewed, how do I correct the angle? I have learned not to be in a hurry to cut anything off.
Now, it occurs to me that this is a common creative dilemma. When you're working on a creation theme, the mind drifts into process. How hard was it for God to decide he was finished? Were there problems with orbits, or with matter hanging together? Did any frayed bits need to be snipped off? Should we view most of the Bible as a revision process? When do you let you creation go off on its own--ask any parent who's coped with that one!
Having the website forces me to accept closure. I'm done with this piece when I post the photo. Well, it's still in the studio and I could reopen the process, but I probably won't. And because the assignment from First Christian Church was to use the first chapter of Genesis, I don't have to cope with fig leaves, the snake or the consequences. That's a whole separate project.
