An Abstract Return

Just messing around today to get back in the groove—it’s hard to be serious (not that any of my art is really serious) after getting back from a vacation.

As has probably become apparent to you regular readers, I like schedules and planning. So while I love vacations (who doesn’t?), changing my schedule really throws me for a loop sometimes. I guess maybe I’m kind of a strange artist—the stereotype of an artist as a free-flowing, fly by the seat of your pants type just doesn’t fit me.

I find the most freedom in schedules—allotting a specific planned time for something gives me the freedom to focus on that thing and let my imagination run around it, without worrying that I should be doing something else. Boring? Maybe. But knowing what I’m doing ahead of time makes me happy and calm. Being happy and calm makes art.
