work life balance

April 9, 2018

I was looking at the work of American abstract painter, Shirley Jaffe this morning –– colourful, geometeric, full of vim –– and I was inspired to read that she painted up until her death at 92. “I have done a lot of work,” Jaffe told the New York Times at her last solo exhibition in 2015. “I do work practically every day now, but a lot less, which disturbs me. But I do try to keep to a rhythm of doing at least something every day.” The idea of a person’s work satiating, steering and balancing them until their end, is very inspiring to me. “To the end, she retained the power to surprise,” wrote the Times in her obituary.
