I’m screwed. My backlog is out of hand; I can’t possibly keep up. The ideas keep coming. It’s not by my will. It seems like ‘something’ outside of me is making paintings and I’m merely the assistant. It surprises and worries me that the ‘something’ doesn’t care that many paintings do not get finished. I am buried under a mountain of unfinished paintings. Where will I find the time I need?
I realized some time ago that there isn’t enough time to learn everything that I want to learn. That includes things that I might need to help me with these paintings.
When you realize that you do not have time for everything, you view time differently. How you think about time flavors everything.
It doesn’t matter that I can’t learn everything I want or need.
