The time I have is limited to discreet chunks, under an hour, some just over two. The din of life has been creeping in to those chunks of time and I want to take some back and maybe steal a few too. The little paintings I'm working on (Blisses) are tiny thefts, time I rescue from my full-time job. The images are painted on the housings of IC chips. They're miniatures in oil, painted with very small brushes. The chips are still mounted on the original circuit boards, so the paintings are surrounded by a dense, low lying underbrush of computer circuitry.
