Is art cathartic for you?
Not really. At times it can be a chore if I have a commission or a time limit on a piece of art and I am not particularly inspired by the subject matter. When I am inspired, it tends to be when I’m really busy and don’t have time for it. So there are few times where I have a great idea that works when I put it to paper and the time to spend on it all at the same time. When this happens, it’s lovely, but not so much cathartic.
