I know myself well enough at this point to understand that part way through any project is the most difficult time for me creatively. I begin to question my original decisions and look my work with a harsh critical eye. The project at the Mansion in May is no exception. I am currently agonizing over the remaining rock placements, the path, the dry garden, the furniture choices, the lamp choices and the plants, plants, plants. This is part of my process, I understand that, but it doesn’t make is any easier.
I got a boost from the press preview because all of my peers were definitely intrigued by what we had done so far. There weren’t many press, but many of the other designers were there.
