Avoid the Trap

The trap that trips up many an artist is this: they isolate and segregate their art from the rest of their lives, or other work they might do.

To counter this issue of fragmentation, I realized that everything I do is my art; this insight allowed me to continue as an artist uninterrupted living an integrated holistic life. When I paint, this is my art; when I write, this is my art; when I illustrate, this my art; when I walk my dogs, this is my art; when I interact with people, this is my art.

You get the picture. This is not a new perspective.
