If your life is anything like mine, you have multiple demands on your time. In my case there's a new job, an aging mom I'm caring for, and art classes to teach and prepare for. It can feel impossible to find time to create art and this is the challenge: Find ways to put art in your life in simple daily ways!
So this is one way I do this: I place the art work I am in the process of developing in different spots in my home where I will "bump" into them as I go about living my crazy busy life. I am fortunate in that I have a partner that fully supports my creativity and does not mind that I do this. I tape drawings to chairs, put paintings on art boards and lay them on the floor, and tape paintings over existing framed works of art. It works beautifully!
Now I get fresh ideas for the next step to take to develop my drawing or painting and I don't have to do anything extra to accomplish this. Inspiration strikes and I jot the idea down. Now when I have the time to test the idea out, all I have to do is give it a go.
What do you do to help yourself make room for art in your crazy busy life? How do you develop your art?
Here are some of my current works in development.
