I had a great idea from yesterday’s post! If I can justify working on something fun by saying it’s for business, why not make up reasons for doing all the rest of my projects? It would be a great way to legitimize the time I spend on art! Let’s see, I could do a print for my Etsy store (actually, I’ve used that excuse before)…or make something to put in the background of my website…or use a print of a drawing to cover that spot on the wall…the possibilities are endless! No more skulking around after the chores, trying to scrape some time together—art is the chore now! And everyone knows chores take priority!
Of course, the danger here is that art really does become a chore and I start looking for reasons to justify house-cleaning. That would be sad.
Probably a risk worth taking, though!
