Art Studio Songs

Moving past, moving forward, moving beyond. Changes have a way of happening whether you want or need to them to or not. Big change, that’s the music I’ve been facing for a while.

I’ve been hunkered down in the studio for the last couple of months making a new series of art for a big solo exhibition in October. That also means I’ve been listening to music day and night. Listening and feeling music has always been a major part of my creative inspiration. Therefore I thought I’d share a few of my go to songs when working in the studio. I never grow tired of these songs and always want to listen to when making art. Keep in mind, this list is off the top of my head and represent only a sample of those go to songs.

Hunkered Down

I’m as focused as I can be. Other than seeing clouds as thought bubbles, my imagination is focused on this new body of work. I’m hunkered down, but I’ve still got a million fragments that I’m furiously weaving together into a cohesive visual experience (or something like that). I’ll be hunkered down continuously until October.

I’ve got some things to say, so I keep on fighting!

The Final Night Of Preparation

Tonight is the last night of working in the studio for this exhibition. Tomorrow I load up the panel van and drive everything to the gallery. Once again, I survived the multitude of battles that take place in the studio of the artist. I plan to write more thoughts on that subject at a later date. For now, it’s showtime. Finally.
