Have you heard the advice “Just come to the page” for writers who suffer from writer’s block or who claim they are too busy to sit down and write? They are told to take just a few minutes per day to show up at the page and write something…anything.
Now that my schedule is getting far more hectic, I’m putting a twist on that advise and saying to myself, “Just come to the sketchbook”. Each day, draw something…anything. Now, I know it’s the wrong time of year for traditional resolutions but I’m making a September resolution to draw one sketch a day all month long. I have to continue with my art no matter how busy I get. As all creative people know in their hearts, if we don’t draw, sculpt, dance, write, or play our instruments, we can’t be as happy as we are when we are creating.
I’ve got a small sketchbook, pencil, and sharpener that I will keep with me at all times. Let’s see how it goes 🙂 How do you fit art into your schedule when you get busy?
