This is the most honest statement I've come across in the slew of books telling you to think big to get big.
This piece got shaped over 24 hours. I put down the basics then kept coming back to it until it felt finished to me. I've learned to be patient with my work, to wait and let it speak to me. It always tells me what more it needs, and when to stop. [edit. The piece is 8-1/2 x 7 inches]
The words for this are not the ubiquitous "fly" -- they are decay and rebirth in Nature.
