Time Limits and Prioritization

I started this daily drawing practice nearly 9 years ago, with the intention of getting myself to prioritize  art-making in my life. It has been really rewarding; I look forward to spending time every day, basically dreaming while awake and playing with art materials.

The daily drawings have a way of expanding to fill the time available, and soaking up most of my studio time. With more free time and a proper studio, I’m starting to feel a little frustrated by having a backlog of projects that are never quite finished, and drawings I wish I could spend more time on.

I’m going to try a shift in my ‘rules’ for the daily drawing: I will spend no more than an hour on each one. This will mean that sometimes what I post will not feel finished to me, or may be more of a sketch or an idea. If I continue working on the drawing, I’ll post the finished version on the page with the original post, and flag it on the various social media (currently Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Ello and Instagram)

I’m including some views of my studio just for fun. Can’t get over my good fortune in having such a place to work in every day!
