Do everything but make art.

I thought it would be great having a studio but I am spending more time running around for supplies for the work I want to do than I am actually in the studio. Need clay. Go buy clay. Need mounting hardware go find mounting hardware. Need lens. Go spend a couple of days shopping around because lenses are expensive and I ain’t paying retail. Finally find lens. Hum and haw for two days. Then end up buying it anyways. It was on sale. So, meh. Am I missing something? How much time does an artist actually spend in their studios versus running around doing anything else other than making art? I am starting to understand why artists like their privacy when in their studios and the value of having a good assistant. The time in a studio is so rare and precious that it is worth protecting.
