Anyone know of a good time machine I can borrow?

Where does time as an artist go? I definitely had  more spare time (and certainly more disposable income) when I worked as a full time teacher. Yet, I now have the best of both worlds in that I get to paint murals, undertake commissions, do residencies such as this one and still teach visual arts part time in the community. The reality is ... there is no time to do all this! Consequently, it has taken until now to resolve this project to point at which I feel it is okay to stop. So, apologies for adding four galleries at once, but these are the last ones. 

I can honestly say that I have enjoyed this project immensely. AA2A provided an opportunity to think through an idea and the motivation to take it forward to a conclusion.  As usual for me, the process of recording and developing ideas raised more questions than it answered. What if? Why? How? The list goes on ... but that's what makes art exciting and that's why I'm already thinking about what comes next.  

Good luck to all aspiring artists out there. It's not easy, but it's worth it.
