Personally.. I love isolation. As a classic introvert (which might not be obvious in class!), I need a lot of alone time.. and if I cant get that, at least recharging time. I could spend all day at home and in my studio entertaining myself and making things – food, art, home projects, gardening, reading, just staring out the window. For many of artists, this is true.. How are you feeling? I am finding the slowdown from my usual activities of running around teaching 6 classes, soccer practice for my kids, etc a nice breather. I stumbled upon this article and it really spoke to me. Take a look and discover new artists – Ruth Asawa is one of my personal favorites.
