i am on a roll these past two days. i have to stop now, because there is not really any more room for drying prints. that is a wonderful feeling. as an artist, i go through big bursts of creating work. and then there are the dry spells. you know, when every idea turns into a dud, or you are just not that in to it.
i had a lot of worry around moving to my home studio in january. i thought i would not be able to concentrate at home, and that i might focus on the everyday chores instead of working. luckily, that has not been the case. i actually think that i have been more productive here than anywhere else i have worked in my lifetime. a few things have definitely helped. one is that i have an amazing space to work in, and a guest bedroom next door for the overflow. the second is that i am older and calmer than i used to be. sitting all day in the house making art was not something i could have handled in my 30's or early 40's. now it is a gift to sit all day and create. i am so very fortunate!!
