being still

Today I'm painting in the studio, quietly, with windows open and taking notes through the process. During this week of teaching, appointments, planning for shows, projects and the like I've hardly had time to think. So I completely delight in this time. Solitude, or simply being still, is so important to creativity, don't you think? Furthermore, I just put the last strokes on a painting!

And now all I can think about is what will I make for lunch?
