I just discovered this website in 2017 after reading Carol’s book, and it has been a great source of inspiration and motivation. I actually had “discovered” the concept of daily painting and smaller artwork on my own many years ago, but then quit painting for quite a few years. I worked in a different field than art and it was hard finding time to paint. However, I retired a year ago and one of my goals was to start painting again.
I am approaching artwork like I do exercise— I try to do something every day, but I’m flexible about the specific action. I may not paint every day, but I do it several days a week and do related activities on my “off” days, such as drawing, reading about art, going to galleries, viewing art on-line, organizing my studio, toning canvases, etc.
