I’ve been to the studio three nights in a row now, and it feels absolutely terrific. It’s amazing what an incredible impact having this studio has had on my life. It’s affected not just my artistic mindset, but my physical health as well. As many of you know, I have too much energy and at times I have difficulty managing that. With the studio, I’ve been getting out my nervous energy and I’ve been sleeping better at night as a result. My sessions at the studio are short, only about 1.5-2 hours at a time. It actually works well because the etching ink is quite physically demanding on my fingers. I find myself rubbing into the surface of the Dura-Lar with a lot of pressure, so doing a very long session would be tough on my fingers.
