Putting Yourself on an Artist Schedule

Have you ever tried to get a certain amount of work done in a short time? Maybe you are just trying to build a body of work and are having trouble moving forward. One of the best ways that worked for me early on was to either develop a schedule or set goals for completion. So maybe you will make it a goal to complete a painting a week, or you will set a side 2 hours a day to work on your art. The hard part is keeping to a schedule. I also like starting three paintings at the same time, that way when you get bored with one you can set it aside and begin working on the other ones. This keeps the juices flowing and stops you from overworking a painting because you don’t have another one to start. If you make your art creation a habit you will find you are on the way to completing your artwork instead of competing with it.
