blast from the past

I have been a bit worried the past months. I have backed up my portfolio over the past 8 or so years but after the move, I haven't been able to find the CDs. Finally, one turned up and I have had a great time going back and seeing some of these really old pieces.

I never had a problem selling them, but now, when I look at some of my favorites I have a tiny regret. Of course, I can't hold on to everything and the thought that, "I could always make it again if I really wanted to" is there but we all know that I would never recreate a piece again.

It is also a perfect opportunity to see how much I have developed and grown the past years. When I look at these pieces, the feeling comes back at how insecure I was, a feeling that has gone now with the hundreds of pieces created since this time.

A lovely little retrospective! Its always interesting to look back and see how we have changed and grown. Regardless of when you created your work it is always inspiring for me!

We're supposed to grow and it's a good thing, too!

Your work has always been lovely.
