Its one of those days again when I get impatient to make something different, and it does not really matter whether it is a Hawaiian or any other type of canoe or ship, but simply one that is not alike the canoe models I made in the last few months and which invites to be imaginative and creative to build it.
This process mostly starts in the middle of the night. I wake up and pictures start forming in my mind. I see the lines of the boat or canoe, I can visualize its beauty. I go through the mental process of building or carving the model, piece by piece, step by step but fully aware that things are easier done in one’s imagination than in reality. And it’s with this in mind that I try to foresee the difficulties in wanting to build this or that model and figure out solutions to resolve them.
The entire visualization process will stay fresh in my mind for days and I put some of those mental pictures onto paper today by drawing the lines of that Hawaiian sailing canoe that kept me awake for a couple of hours in the middle of last night.
