Thanks for the encouragement and ideas! I definitely need to follow through with myself when I say that I want to paint more. It’s almost harder to follow through on my own values than it is to let other “higher priority” items take the lead. I like what Kristen mentioned about doing a monthly studio day, almost like it’s a workshop that I’m attending, but just with myself. I think I just need to write it down and stick to it! I usually tell myself I”ll have time to paint on the weekends, but then things crop up…someone wants to meet for lunch, this errand became a high priority…and then I realize the weekend is over!
