PAINTING: POWERS OF OBSERVATION: Chuck Close: Note To Younger Self. I was in the eighth grade and was told not to even think about going to college.

PAINTING: POWERS OF OBSERVATION: Chuck Close: Note To Younger Self

I couldn’t add or subtract, never could memorize multiplication tables, was advised against taking algebra, geometry, physics, chemistry. Since I was good with my hands I was advised to aim for trade school, perhaps body and fender work. Never let anyone define what you are capable of by using parameters that don’t apply to you. I applied to a junior college in my hometown with open enrollment, got in and embarked on a career in the visual arts.

I think a lot of us, especially if we are doing this full time, have difficulties in managing our time properly.

Time management for artists

Its difficult to organize a day when there are 20 things you'd like to paint, emails to respond too, late night deadlines that screw up the next days plans, people knocking on your door thinking that because you are a self employed artist and don;t punch a "normal" clock, you don't have any proper responsibilities and can drop anything you are doing because someone needs a favour. We have commissions to handle, money to manage, shows to submit to.
