Want to know the big secret to making painting a daily habit? Paint where you are, with what you've got. The idea that we need a designated painting studio and long, uninterrupted stretches of time in order to make work, is completely unnecessary. Trust me, I know this from personal experience.
Over the past 10 years as a full-time artist, I have painted in the most unlikely of places including: a green house, a walk-in closet, a furnace room, my bedroom, a tiny studio apartment, a wannabe studio with no windows and barely enough light, a freezing cold/stifling hot garage, the kitchen floor, a carpeted living room, an old, decomposing pick-nick table, the park, a motor home, and a pool table.
What I am trying to say is this: Don't wait. The most important thing you can do, is to do what you love with heart and consistency.
Studio space is a luxury, so are high end art supplies, and so is inspiration.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art making process can be a vehicle for empowerment.
I am living proof.
