Have you ever heard an artist to say, “I love the hours I spend on my computer, applying for shows, writing my artist’s statement, organizing my images and responding to emails. It’s so much FUN!”?
Almost every artist I know would rather be in the studio, hands in the materials, making stuff.
The administrative and business work associated with being an artist is tedious to most creative types and sometimes downright loathsome.
This can result in putting things off until the last minute, and then rushing through them, subtly (or overtly!) resenting the task at hand, and feeling pressed for time.

I experience the spaciousness of time as I work on my computer.
I take frequent pauses to check in with my deeper self.
