Challenges and Inspiration

So far I am finding a few interesting challenges in my day-to-day life as a stay at home artist.

1. Knowing when to take a break, relax, and NOT work.
2. Keeping things in perspective.
3. Reminding myself not to devalue my work. It's very very difficult to put a price on one's own work. Especially art. Design, not so much. It's a simple equation there. Not so easy on a painting. Somehow the "per-hour" rate doesn't feel right. A very tricky thing and any input from folks who've figured it out would be appreciated!

So those are the challenges. What is the inspiration of the moment?
1.
Chateau de Mayragues


2. The audiobook version of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere.

And new stuff!
