The amount of time I have to spend on general administration but also applications for new commissions/pedagogical art projects/exhibitions - and meetings - is killing me. I spend like three times the time I spend on making my own art. I have actually come to a point right now when I have a very hard time motivating myself to continue like I have done before ... I have this long list of things I should do at nights this week - and something inside me is just refusing.

Yesterday I finally got around to do some test printing at KKV (for my own work). I had planned working on this in summer, but other things got in the way all the time - like the two commissions, teaching the summer course - and summer vacation. Actually this year has been like that all the time - not much time for my personal work. But on the other hand I've been working on interesting projects generating incomes - so next year I'll be able to prioritize my own art and no worry much about money.
"Except" (it's quite a lot to do!) for making the Portal (the commission for the preschool) with curtains and a fairytale, the rest of 2013 will mean material tests and research for some ideas I have for my own art. I think I can see the bigger picture now - I should not hurry.
