#Welcome back to the #Studio – Almost a full week – #LateStart #Wednesday

Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightening to strike you in the brain, you are not going to make an awful lot of work. All the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself.” Chuck Close

What a great week we had last week. Artists are making themselves comfortable in the studio, figuring out who they are, what skills they have, where they might be struggling, What they like and dislike. This week is going to be a VERY SOLID week of work. Critiques, New Ideas, New Materials, New Challenges will be faced by all. Be ready to work and make a lot of strides in your work. – Korb
