When it comes to Art, the hardest part for me is the preliminary step of preparation. My Japanese Washi (rice paper) comes in a large sheet, so I have to cut it to the size I need for each painting.
When I am ready to paint, I grab any size of paper I find or quickly cut a piece of paper. I want to get to painting as soon as possible. This means that I have to measure and cut a painting once it has finished which then leads to several finished paintings waiting to be measured and cut.
It's been 3 months since I left Japan, and I have finally gotten back to painting. I have three paintings that I've completed during the last couple of weeks. And ... yes ... you guessed right. They have to be measured and cut.
And, I hear this little voice in the back of my head saying: "I think the solution is to cut sheets to the sizes you need all at once. Then you will have that step done."
