I went to a lecture at Salford about this subject which I found fascinating – it’s something you can relate to if your studio is in your house or garden. My practice is punctuated by putting washing on , then the ding of the machine when it’s done, putting the washing out, bringing it in, dishing it out to my children, making lunches, cooking; domesticity. Also the time between 7:40 am and 3:40 pm when the children leave the house and return is key working time and the knowledge of this seems to intensify and focus me on the Work. It’s a fine balance and I tend to use these domestic rhythms as short breaks in focus then back to (literally) the big picture.
