(photo of the clock in my studio>>>& this is the time i got up this morning!) the topic for this week's studio friday... the times that i tend to do my most focused creative work, thinking, playing are pre-dawn OR late night...sometimes, i have been known to work in my studio (as well as in my 'satellite' studio, my office/guest bedroom, where the computer paraphernalia is located) straight after i have eaten dinner to the time my dh wakes up to go to work (that's the following morning, folks!)...if truth be told, i do sometimes take a catnap or two on the guest bed, hehehe! that's during the week...on the weekends (or on my days off), if i am not in the garden, about the house doing household chores or at an antique/thrift shop, you can usually find me dabbling & tinkering (as my husband calls it) in either studios...i float in & out throughtout the day. i guess that is the convenience of having no wee ones running amok at our place, lol! & this is a sign i made a few years ago, which i have hung on the wall of my studio>>> to serve as a constant reminder. time is short, as they say, & we've got to make the most of it.

    Wow! an all nighter! Sounds like fun...and perhaps a little magical - like when fairies come out at night and sprinkle fairy dust all over the place! :)

    Love your Karma in Action plan...just reading your post made me feel happy...Thanks!

    Uuuuhhhh! That's early. No mornings are definitely not my creative times! More toward lunch, afternoon. But that's interesting how other artist find there time to create or when!

    That is so interesting! My time to create seems to be the late afternoon or also the evenings. But all night? Not for me, nope. Hahaha! Wow!
    I like the way your desk looks, so similar to mine!!

    I am totally a night owl! I Live for 10PM- 1AM ;)
    I live in the moment, time seems to stand still for me when I create. I can miss meals, forget to do something else and even forget to pee! LOL
    I love to block out that ever-pesky clock and just live in the moment!

    Oh, how I wish I could still work into the wee hours! That used to be my best time, but over the years that has changed. Sounds like a lot of your time is studio time! Good for you........and great quote to live by.
