I have a lot of work to do right now. Several orders and a few offers on upcoming exhibitions but I just don’t seem to have the time to paint right now. But is it the lack of time or is it my priorities that needs to be made differently? I don’t want to give up my social life for my career but I sure do need to plan things better.
As an artist you are usually very sensitive. Somehow that role requires it. But at the same time there are often a lot of pressure to preform coming from different directions, from others, from society and from yourself. And yet at the same time painting takes a lot of time. And there is no way you can predict how long time it takes to create a piece of art. All of these opposite polarities takes a toll on you sometimes and today I feel caught up in the middle of everything. But I don’t have time to think about that right now. I’m off to a photo assignment that needs to be done and later a dinner with friends.
