Three reasons to paint every day
Painting every day is so much like taking your vitamins, exercising and eating right. Without it your health/painting health can suffer. For me it is so true. Is it for you?
I returned from the beach this weekend and went right outside to paint. In the last 24 hours these are the 3 paintings I have completed. It was a struggle. I felt out of sorts, as if I needed to re-friend my materials. When I paint every day I am in a groove, it's not as much about thinking as responding.
I wonder how other artists deal with this. How do you? Sure it's good to get away and rest your mind from burn out... but there's a price to pay. I feel like I am relearning how to ride that horse.
Oh well, the beach was wonderful:-)
