If there is a Holy Grail I've sought in all the decades I've made art in one form or another, it's been focus. It seems always to elude me, except for that very specific kind when I'm deep in the middle of one project. But in the general sense (feeling oxymoronic this morning), focus eludes me. Focus actually stands just outside my peripheral vision and, with thumbs in ears and tongue sticking out, taunts "Nanee nanner nah nee! Yoooo can't catch meeeee!"
Focus has much in common with my younger sister at seven, apparently.
Do you have problems with this concept, with being able to see the direction you want to go, and just...go there? Do you draw a map first, or do you follow some innate focus that leads you?
