Odd Hours for Art
Well, this is an old habit of mine. At 1:45 AM, I decide to put a little paint on some fabric for an idea that is percolating in my mind. Perhaps this is why former nurses often turn to art when they retire? We've worked rotating shifts, 8 hr shifts and 12 hr shifts. We've blended night and day and the work goes on because you take care of people 24 hrs a day. So dabbing a little paint on cloth and heading to bed at 2:00AM doesn't seem odd at all! When I can't sleep, I have been known to flip the switch on the long arm and away I go, to that creative space that knows not how to tell time.
