At this point I have enough info so move forward with a few images so I am going to move into the half and half stage, spending some time research and some time making. I look forward to the making but will still have to keep the timer going or I will end up bent over and broken! While making work I have to remember to take care of myself as well!
I think that for me, working in isolation as we are all doing now has gone relatively painlessly. I tend to work that way most of the time anyway and it has removed a few of my distractions. I have found however, that I miss the contact that I had with fellow artists and creative folks. Having them to hand meant that I could reach out at any time for advice, critique, or just a hello and let's have lunch and talk about random things. I may be antisocial but I have found that I still need connection, just at my pace:) The connections I have found through social media and phone calls every day to family have keep me from falling into depression which I was worried about when this started. Though the days seems to be blending into one another (I had no idea it was Sunday today) I have managed to get up every day, get dressed and be productive in some way or another. I built a pantry last week, cleared out and reorganized my studio putting it into making mode, cleared out a bit of gathered mess about the house and generally have moved forward in the day to day activities that can get laid aside when things go awry.
I know this isn't the case for everyone.
I don't know how much longer this will go on. I hope that my work and social media connections can help me make it through. I hope that we can all make it through well and come out the other side having learned some very valuable lessons about how our society needs to adjust moving forward.
I have too many thoughts to put down now. More to come later.
Stay healthy everyone!
