Glad you mentioned film. It reviews this debate and guilt.
As artist and parent...
I work every available moment - but prioritize children first - and understand that my plan can change at any given moment. I schedule studio time next to basketball games and parent conferences. I require my annual art sabbaticals of intense arts immersions at workshops. I find that these getaways help me define my work and really focus on year ahead of me, review my themes, and work out forms and ideas.
The children are precious, but I don't give everything away. I hold onto the art side of me and honor the training and pensive work time it requires. Daily battle of balancing. Daily compromises. ...but also daily happiness and daily fulfillment. Latest compromise...creating art on a theme revolving around being a parent. HA!
