"I'm a work horse. I like to work. I always did. I've never had a day when
I didn't want to work. And even if I didn't want to compose, I painted or
stacked the pieces or something. In my studio I'm as happy as a cow in her
I also recall a suggestion I heard one of our art faculy, Ken Kerslake,
tell MFA canidates in my class once time. Ken told them to set time aside
each week for themselves to go to their studio and just sit (if need be).
You don't have to actually work on art...read, sort through stuff...just
think. He called it "making an appointment with yourself." I loved the
idea and have tried to practice it ever since.
