The most important part of a piece of art is the part that few ever really think about, and that is the creation period. Time spent in the studio doing the work is rarely recorded, and I’ve always found images and information from another artist’s studio exciting and interesting.
Next year I’m going to try and keep an accurate record of my daily work, I hope to keep some kind of daily check list, and a daily photo. I’m planning on doing 52, 16×20 paintings, and I’m also planning a on collecting images from other artist’s studios. I’ll gather the images from magazines and other sources, and hopefully other artist’s will send me images or notes from their studio’s. That’s my plan, and I hope to stick to it.
