Just walk away. Find the work with new fresh eye’s. Eyes that aren’t clouded with expectations. Comparing work with the daydream that originally fueled the process can be counter productive. As a craftsman, discovering the work for what it IS rather than what it is not is challenging. It takes practice to learn to forget a work. Discovery at a distance is relational. It’s a treasure hunt of emotional triggers and tools of transformation. Let go and enjoy the depth and beauty of the world that’s been created.
