In order to work on an art project I need a certain space. My head needs to be in a certain space, but I also need to be in a certain space physically. I’ve learned that I can not be distracted.
Even when I’m at home I’ll turn my music up really loud or put on headphones. I have playlists just for creating. The music prevents me from being distracted by whatever else is going on around me and is a constant reminder that I’m working.
I also need a space that has just enough stuff around to inspire me but not distract me. I’m constantly rearranging everything. I recently reconfigured my art area. It works a bit better now, but there are still a few things I need to do. I need a new chair or stool. I was using one of my dining chairs. Any suggestions?
Do you need anything special to get you in the creative mood? What kind of space do you create in?
