Trying to Keep Pace

the studio, January 2011

I'm always trying to catch up.

I have an abundance of imagery and words in my minds eye. I feel an overwhelming sense of urgency to get them all out of my head and onto the canvas quickly, before they disappear from memory. But there are too many visions, and I can't physically work that fast. So I have to make choices. And some ideas may never see light. Because by the time I've completed the first bunch, my mind has already moved beyond where I was before. Maybe if I didn't have such an abundance of pictures in my head, I would be able to produce more. But I don't think I'd like that trade-off.

So, I'd better just show up every day. Get as much out of my system that I can.
