I find beginnings difficult. I often don’t know where to start and can spend hours, days, sometimes weeks, procrastinating. But as soon as I have taken those first few steps, then there is that sudden rush of enthusiasm where I can see potential in everything I try. Then along comes the next stage of doubt where I don’t know which of the many ideas to pursue further and all that potential seems to have vanished anyway… I am amazed when I look back over old sketchbooks at the number of perfectly good ideas I have abandoned at this stage… so here are a few of the many experiments which never went any further.

And let’s hope I manage to get this blog over those tricky stages!
