12 x 12 oil on canvas
Since September is my anniversary month it seems very logical to embark on a new challenge. September also seems appropriate because this was the time of year I got my new box of Crayola crayons when I was in grade school. I loved the smell of the little sticks of wax when I cracked open the fresh box. The brand new box made me feel special and filled with excited anticipation of what great masterpiece I would create with my little friends.
I digress, so on to my new challenge... Now that the habit of painting (almost daily) is firmly established(whew, you'all knew what that took) I intend to form a new habit. The habit of spending 60% of my time creating and 40% on the business of art. "They" say any business owner should spend an equal 50/50 split, but that feels just a little heavy to me. So 60/40 it is.
As this new concept has been forming in my mind, I have begun to realize my daily schedule has some bad habits deeply embedded in it, otherwise known as wasting time, ugh!. So those habits need to die, be murdered, put to rest, sent out to pasture, however you want to say it, and new habits formed in their place. I will be curious to see if I go through the same blockers ( described in my last post) as I did when I was forming the habit of painting on a regular basis. I will keep you informed. Is there new habit you want to form? or old habit you want to get rid of? I'm just saying.
