These days I'm thinking quite a bit about my art practice and how I organize my time. I continuously fight an underlying belief that I can only paint when I am in the mood. Because I am on a deadline, I make myself go to the studio on many days. I seem to be immersed in this pull between wanting to paint and having to paint. While I am satisfied with my efforts some days, other times I have to rework what I have already painted. Have you ever felt like you are swimming someday and not even knowing where the water is on others?
No amount of guilt could send me to the studio yesterday evening. I spent time on the computer instead and was rewarded by reading a great post by Kesha Bruce whose blog I follow. She is using a weekly goal setting strategy that is very organized and appeals to my professional accountability side (which is not being exercised much lately). Currently I spend way too much time reflecting with not action following the reflection. Kesha has it all tied together in here Sunday Summit and I am inspired to follow her example. Perhaps there's something in this post for you to consider in your practice.
