I have experienced this ... hours pass as I create my "little pieces of art" that I discovered during my Reverb '12 project. I feel productive. I surprise myself as the creative process unfolds and shows something evolving out of nothing ... out of the blank canvas. One might consider this a bit of a self-portrait ... the side I'm willing to share ... the side I want to focus on. Yes, there is a darker side. I try not to let it take over.

I have been asked what I've been doing to keep busy while I look for work ... I must say, I've been staying busy with my creative expression. It is the one thing that draws me in even though there are lots of other things I probably should be doing ... cleaning house, organizing, purging. Ah, the life of a creative ... a life a little bit crazy. It all begins with the question: I wonder how you do that?
