I question myself. Who doesn't? Sometimes, when I'm working on a new design, I'll know immediately that I've hit the mark. Mission accomplished. Next. However, there are those times when I'm too close to my work and lose my objectivity. Then I question.
I spent the afternoon in the studio while hubby took our boys and nephew to pick up a fridge for his shop. I had a second go at creating a hippo bank and thought I'd gotten it better than the last attempt but there was that question. I've kinda gotten into the habit of presenting a new animal bank or birdhouse design to my boys and asking them to identify it. So when they got home I unveiled him and just asked "What is it?". To my delight 3 out of the 4 said "It's a hippo!". My middle son, (Mr. Contradictory) said "It's a pig!". I've come to expect this from him. He says everything I make looks like a pig. So I don't count his vote. But it still nags at me if he really thinks it looks like a pig or is he teasing me again.
What do you think?
