The other thing I have been doing is re-reading Twyla Tharp's book The Creative Habit. I highly recommend this book. I like her writing just for the fact that it is completely straight forward. She basically lets you know that if you don't get out there and create you are never going to be any better at your art. She uses a lot of examples of other artists from all different backgrounds and talents and it makes it really interesting to read. I also like that it's not just about making art a habit, but about how we create it and how to get past those pesky critics we all have in our head. I received this book for Christmas a couple of years ago and read it then, but I think I am getting more out of it this time.
So tomorrow, I will be finishing the studio and hopefully making something. I have ideas that are finally coming up and I think I will finally have the space to make them. Now, I just have to remember to clean up after myself.
