It seems with almost every project we think of a new way to do things which will add even more detail than we've done previously. As we start we congratulate ourselves on the brilliant discovery. But as we get into the project it becomes obvious that the new marvellous ways take a lot of time. As we get about three quarters of the way through doubt sets in and we wonder what we got ourselves into and how will we ever get through. We persevere and as we near the end our thoughts change again to isn't this marvellous! The new found detail is always worth this struggle and we never want to go back to the old way of doing things. Then with the next project we raise the bar once again and the whole process begins anew.
Today as I was working on the seemingly endless rock and bracing detail at the bottom of the Sign Invitational Challenge piece I struggled through this exact scenario. But by the afternoon as I finished the section I could once again see the light at the end of the tunnel.
