Inspiration comes working hard and being focused.
Updated: Sep 5, 2020
It means for me having a normal schedule of working hours, even if I work in my studio that is in my basement is all about discipline because when you stay at home is very easy to get distracted from your work , this is a big challenge. believe me !!! it is...
first, take a shower and take off pajamas and make like you are going to somewhere out of your house another way it is to respect the everyday routine and this is what I need to do no matter what. no exceptions...the best is to have 8 hours a day from Monday to Friday.
then inspiration comes in this process it gets you working . their is no better way to got the magic of creativity and new ideas. is Increrible how it happens. is like god talking to you while you are working.
there are days that I feel to quit and not be too rigid about it ... but then I realized that is the only way to make it happen.
Discipline,routine,focus and hard work .
this is one of the many tables that I use for working, when i say many are about six different ones, here in this time i use it to frame my art prints on wood blocks ready to hang, no need to frame them. I normally make series of them. cut the wood 8x8 in, sand, paint in black in the sides and glue a papercraft protector on the back where I normally name the piece, dated, and signed it.
Then the final touch is the metal hanger for hanging.
in the meantime, if this process sometimes I like to watch a movie, listen to broadcasts, music, or documentary, and sometimes I like to listen to an audiobook. I try to make it enjoable most of the time.
This set of 4 canvas,12x12x2" acrylics wrapped canvas, is inspired in collection art pieces created by Josef Albers Artist from 1972 from the portfolio Formulation Articulation, this incredible series is made of 127 original silkscreens.
Hard Edge Style on art is one of my favorites because of the simplicity and bright colors.
