chrisbrodbeckartwork asked: What do your working hours/ schedule consist of? I feel a constant anxiety that I am not working enough.
I have been self-employed for over two years and while that is obviously an immense blessing it can also be difficult for a workaholic…For me, it’s important to get to the studio at least 5 days a week and for however many hours a day I need to work. I try to maintain an average work week of 25-40 hours- sometimes more with datelines approaching. I constantly need to remind myself that other aspects of my life are important as well, such as a social life, working out, down time etc.
The anxiety is coming from the drive to grow and improve in your work. I completely relate- but know that the time you spend away from the studio is actually part of your work as an artist as well. The life experience and time you spend not thinking about the work will serve you just as much. Work when you feel like it and live without guilt the rest of the time:)
Hope that helps

osicranharas asked: What were you thinking when you were painting "Merging the Phantom"?
I was thinking about the “shadow self” or aspects of ourselves that we suppress. These shadows may be dark, negative and murky, but often they are also the positive, brilliant parts of our being that we choose to ignore and push down. Sometime we are so successful at suppressing and pushing these away that they leave our internal landscape and start to appear in our everyday reality- looking right back at us to be seen. The Phantom for me is symbolic of that other self- a self filled with the things I strive to incorporate back into my present awareness.
