Do you get depressed after you finish a creation?
I saw an article somewhere online recently that it’s common for people to become depressed after they’ve finished an art creation. Do you?
I don’t. I float around for three days in the state of afterglow that cleaning that bathroom couldn’t kill, were I so inclined. It’s kind of like a semi-permanent chocolate buzz without the sugar let down. If I do anything at all, I deal with the piles of stuff that I left on every surface to remind me to do something.
On the third day, however, I try to do all the stuff that I know I’ll ignore, like cleaning the bathroom, once I start the next project.
What about you? How do you respond emotionally to finishing a project and what do you do before you start the next one?
