planning ahead is important in my life, it helps me to give each art piece its needed time. It’s also important to work with passion and that is what I do when creating an art piece, but time flies away and time management problems are always hard to follow with art creation. My desire is to create as much of art as I can, it can not be controlled with time limitation.
