Surges of productivity are something I relish. I've never had a hard time with it- the productivity I mean. If anything, I have to remind myself to pull away from the easel, and the studio to get back to other necessities. Kids, house, weed pulling, grocery shopping. The daily ephemera.

His suggestion of creating something more that what we see intrigues me. I take the message as an impressionistic artist might: my vision. The image I strive for in my painted canvas is not one of realism. Reality is the reason I have a camera, or I look to others photography for that image.
It's the non reality I want.
It's more fun there anyway.
