Some #embroidery I've been working on here and there for a while. Both needle felting and embroidery have become my go to mediums to work with when I get discouraged about my painting . . . I was in the middle of a really ridiculous period of burnout around this time last year where I didn't make any work for months. Painting gets really draining for me when my goals and visions for my work continuously don't match up with the final product. It's been very difficult learning to let that go, and to accept that progress is often slow and failed pieces are still necessary learning experiences. It's a different type of progess, but it's encouraging to see that I'm slowly learning to step back a little instead of beating myself up and pushing myself to keep running on empty . . #tmcyprienart #embroiderylettering #hoopembroidery #beginnerembroidery #artistburnout #artrut #artisticprocess #artblock #paintersblock #backstitch #satinstitch #firstembroidery #embroiderywip #learningembroidery sorry for the irritatingly long post!
