|'The Cloud Show' 8x10 pastel ©Karen Margulis|
painting available $95 Daily Paintworks
Take today....I worked on all five of these painting projects, shipped some ebay stuff (my sister and I have an Ebay store), posted to the blog, listed on Etsy, answered emails, did laundry, gave the dog a bath, visited with my daughter, checked in on facebook (several times) Oh and I had a two hour morning private class with two students and painted a nest demo for them. I think it is helping to keep track of the time I am spending because it is making me try to be more productive.
Being able to paint everyday for my 'job' is a wonderful thing. Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the things I want to do and I wander around the studio aimlessly instead of just diving in and starting the project. Writing it down helps me focus. And having proof of a productive week will make it easier to enjoy the days when I don't feel like doing anything at all!
