It is 5:00 am and I am wide awake because I hear a bunch of paintings calling to me. My ears haven't been tuned very well lately, and I was starting to wonder where the paintings I usually wake up with as my first thought had gone.
I haven't made a painting in a couple of months, I've been focused on basically every other aspect of my business. A business that is built around art.
But, this morning, I woke up and heard them loud and clear. They've just been waiting for me to tune out all the other stuff and tune in on them.
Studio practice... I find it relatively difficult to make myself zone in and work these days, what with all the other work to be done. I spent 2 hours just ordering shipping boxes and materials yesterday.
But winter always helps. When our town hibernates and there isn't something to do or someone to see every single day of the week. Summer is fun, but boy do we pack it in. I am looking forward to focusing in on the reason I have this business: making art.
