What do artists do all day?

Think I’ve seen that there’s a television programme with this title.

What most artists would like to do all day is to produce art – me too!

What I have done so far today is deliver paintings for an exhibition / respond to various enquiries about paintings by email / learn a bit more about how to work my new phone / spend an hour with a very nice woman at Canon support who helped me out – printer was stubbornly refusing to print A5 it kept telling me it was my fault. Sorted that out now I hope. Hopefully I can now print the A5 thing I need to get done and it’s 16.30.

Did manage to do a few quick scribbles in a garden on Saturday!



About northoneartist

I live in London, I can see the top of the Shard from my window. I like making things and I mainly produce paintings which I exhibit and sell if the right person comes along!

    I’ve seen one or two of those programmes-I think I must be doing something wrong-as they all seem to be laid back and do a bit of this and a bit of that-me?i’m like a headless(but fairly well organised)chicken-and a half hour slot on telly wouldn’t even scratch the surface-I could do with at least another 10 hours in the day-how about you?

    • Yes! I don’t like to be sexist but they may be mostly men! Could do with another 10 hrs….keep thinking about women artists who really make it – B.Hepworth etc, you have to let all the other stuff go, and if you’re nice that’s too difficult!

    o exactly!!I think the female mind has far to many scruples-and we usually put ourselves last…its not being a martyr-its just the way we’re made…concentrates the mind wonderfully though!
    what I wouldn’t give ,sometimes,for me tea on the table and the place tidied etc.*sigh*I’m borrowing a studio at the moment for a particular job I’m doing and was talking to the chap who owns it-he said he was happy that one of his daughters has inherited his,he called it ‘obstinacy’,(but I’m not sure that’s the right word)in that she doesn’t care what people think of her,perhaps that’s what most women are guilty of-we do the things we think we ought to (instead of concentrating on our real work)so people don’t think badly of us and like us…
    it has got a little easier for me to be more singleminded as I’ve got older-I think it might be the thought of tempus fugit!!
