No Shortcuts

There are no shortcuts to producing a body of work with depth and breadth. You cannot fake or finesse this. It requires sustained, engaged attention (and intention).

You simply have to keep making art, following your heart and mind, trusting that your voice and vision are going forth into the world and touching others in ways that are needed. My job is to envision, create, and envision again. I can dream, but I cannot force that dream into reality. I envision it until it becomes reality.

Creativity is an imperative in my life. I must make art, and lesser things fall by the wayside, because my energy does not feed them.

That is as it should be. No guilt, no explanations, no regrets.
