Autism, Art and Focus.
June 10, 2016 § 2 Comments
This is me in my double sized studio. I look tired but I’m happy. This week I took on more space for a few months, so that I can more easily complete an Arts Council funded project.
Today I spent 11 hours working in the space without noticing.
The project is absorbing and challenging. I think about it as I go to sleep – often resolving painting problems in my minds eye. I come up with potential solutions and new ideas. I wake before dawn, keen to get on.
This is how it is when inspiration strikes and autistic focus comes in to play.
