Look, I get what you're thinking - how is it possible that an artist is working when staring out the window or sitting in a cafe watching the world go by? There's no way to put this on paper. The fact of the matter is that it's true, and not only that but in fact the artist is probably working longer hours than you are when sitting at your desk. The artist can't shut off. From the moment I wake up to the moment I close my eyes at night I am thinking about art, even when I'm teaching English to my business students. Even when doing that very logical activity I am thinking about my paintings, my projects, my ideas, my past, my present, and my future. Artists believe that there's art in everything, and that's what I see when go through my day. This is every day, seven days a week, 365 days per year. It never shuts off, and I like that. In fact I love it. It defines me.
