What do you do when you don’t have time to spend in your studio? I return to a personal mantra I came up with back when I was juggling the demands of raising children. “Studio time is first. The rest will follow.” If I didn’t put on blinders to the demands of everyday life, I… Continue reading Week in Review 2019 – 05/10
“Life is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans.” This quote is commonly attributed to John Lennon from his lyrics “Beautiful Boy”.
