Why making series?

I started this series a year ago…. finely I finished it! Such a good feeling!

I start series all the time. Mostly in my head. No damage there. But as I really started a series of work I lose interest after 2 to 4 pieces. I know the process and more or less the outcome so why bother to do more…

All these incomplete series are a burden for me. I know that there is something, in my studio or on the attic waiting for me. I really wanted to finish these series but I lost interest. That cost a lot of energy. So there is damage. I hope to finish all the all ready started projects this year. (or next year)

And I’m more motivated now because I experienced how fantastic it is to see more than four pieces!

I read somewhere that you have to create a lot off the same work to let the public understand what they see. They don’t understand a piece of this and some pieces of that and than again something completely different. To be honest, I don’t understand myself in why and what I create.

So I’m sooo pleased with these portraits. Creating them wasn’t boring, it was interesting. They hang above my piano in the living room so I can see I can do it!

I hope to learn more about myself and my art work by finishing the other series. I let you know!

And I hope to tell you later more about why I made these portraits.

  1. Thanks for sharing your approach to doing a series Herma. It’s really helpful to hear about the process and struggles that others go through. I relate!
    And look what you’ve created! Fantastic achievement.
