Yes, Yes, and Yes.

There's a bit of sourdough baking in this, or having a stockpot or fricot simmering on the back of the stove. The attention you give it creates a commitment to your process, and that in turn reduces the attention you have for chasing after a new formulae and gadgets.

And the magic happens when all these limitations free you as an artist.

It could give me nightmares, thinking about Gene Smith in a metaphysical breakdown, paralyzed over the choice between D-76 vs Supernol or something.

And never making the picture of Tomoko and her mother.
