Over the years I have periodically been remiss in how much time I have spent making art. Sometimes I just get lazy. Rarely an intentional choice, usually it is just a subtle easing up on the discipline that is vital for successful production.
I have allowed the natural patterns of life, with its chaotic and random ability to derail most attempts at time management, lull me into complacency. I can’t afford to do that. I need to spend time being creative – often — even daily. So since December 1 I have been working hard at getting new patterns established. Every day I come home from my day job, change cloths, and head for the studio. There is work to be done.
I have four commissions due for Christmas and I can say that I am on target for delivery. .. and I am very much enjoying establishing new patterns of discipline.
