And then other projects came up. . . Then I had put them off for almost a year and I felt guilty every time I thought about them so working on them meant moving that guilt to the forefront of my mind and facing it. Also not something that felt comfortable. So I just didn't do them. For two years. And when I finally set a goal to finish them by the end of April, I realized how silly it had been. They took me approx 6 hours to finish both commissions. And when I think back on the hours and hours and hours of turmoil and pain I put myself through, it seems like a really funny kind of psychosis. Anyway, lesson learned, I hope.
