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.

Virtually everything I’ve done is influenced by my learning disabilities. Inspiration is for amateurs. My father died when I was eleven and that was the tragedy of my life, a horrible thing to happen when you’re so young.

Lead the Field

Above is an old clip from when Earl had a television program. I never saw that, and had no idea who he was until........... I had a gallery in Rockport, a shoestring undercapitalized operation, and I wasn't making enough money to pay my bills., I was making some money, but not enough. I decided I would visit an older and very successful artist who I knew. This fellow had a reputation for advising younger artists and I sought out his help.

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. Some of us (me ) actually live in the studio so the line between what is work and rest gets blurred easily resulting in nothing really getting done. Some have rolodexes, some have schedules, "to do" lists that they make before they go to bed, big charts, or keep everything in their head.
