I have approximately 9 day, and 9 hours and 9 minutes until the Raymond James Stutz Artists Association Annual Open House (just used about 9 minutes to type out the name of the event itself actually). The panic is creeping in and rendering me completely useless.
I have developed a condition called “Multi-Starting” this is similar in nature to “Multi-tasking” but without the desired result of actually completeing something. It goes like kinda like this: dye a piece of silk, stick in microwave, call my Mom, layout some wool on another piece for 30 seconds, decide don’t like, go over and start to paint a panel, stop painting panel halfway thru, leaving brush unwashed and soon worthless, decide to re-dye silk, mask up, glove up, decide don’t like the silk and go back to layout, create new station on pandora because will surely motivate, start to iron something, open window, go get lunch, come back, start to clean floor with toothbrush and vinegar, this green on the floor is pretty, maybe should start new piece in green, start new piece, new piece bad, shouldn’t have gone with green, add lipgloss, go down hall to see if anyone wants to play, realize left iron on, go back into studio, trip over vinegar container, mop up with towel, decide should pack up towels so can wash, hey, haven’t checked docks and maybe something has come in even though haven’t ordered anything, if towels are packed, why be in studio, go home, worry that should be getting things done at studio, remember iron still on, go back to studio with beer, work, think is amazing, but is probably just the beer. Repeat.
