STUDIO SATURDAY- I am a morning maker. Green tea, coffee, and silence greet me every day. While in graduate school I found this out about myself and my process for making as I had to get out the door early to open a coffee shop in Baton Rouge or go teach morning print classes at LSU. Two or three hours in the early AM gave me time to unload, to paint, to create before the “other” hours of the day happened to me. Another two or three hours in later afternoon and then maybe into the evening if the heat and cocktails would allow.
Now I hit my pillow early and rise even earlier to embrace the most quiet part of my day. It works and beautiful things emerge from this practice.
