What An Artist Does

(Image: recombinant sculpture; resequenced paintings; palimpsest series, and brand new series contact for details)   (See here for many  Projects) Every so often someone asks me "What do you do everyday?". I'm surprised at people's surprise at how much there is to do as an artist -- I suppose the romantic idea of just making stuff whenever 'inspired' is a myth that still persists.
