today starts official “office hours” in the studio. a lot of this will be working in my journal, editing text from “take the zarzuela,” and especially getting ready for a large installation for ArtPrize. some of it, also, will surely include important ways to restore the belief in the importance of what i do. you know, things like little naps and reading inspiration like this from Danny Gregory:
“ironically, our society tends to portray artists as dreamers. but those who suppress their creativity are actually the ones living in a dream. an artist is someone who sees and feels reality very intensely. creativity doesn’t mean just making things up out of thin air. it means seeing and feeling the world so vividly that you can put together connections and patterns that help to explain reality. it means you see the beauty in the world rather than trying to hide from it.”
thank you, danny.
