Why Working in Small Bursts of Time Works
This is titled "Woman in Hat." It is acrylic on 140lb watercolor paper. The verse on the left side says, " In the event a zebra shows up at your door please invite him in and offer tea." Well, I would. Wouldn't you?
Working on a small scale is a good method for completing projects inbetween domestic opportunities (always like to stay positive) and the day job. When I create in little bursts of time on little canvases then I keep my brush moving. This is important in order to keep the imagination alive. I no longer wait for those long leisurely days to write or paint. (Those haven't showed up for me yet...although I haven't stopped hoping and working towards that.) I grab ahold of little bits of time and chase after myself with it all. And look what happens as a result...a zebra shows up at the door and I invite him in for tea.
