Friends and readers of this blog know that I’ve been trying to build painting into my daily routine for a while now. The time I spend on the computer every day has prevented me from succeeding so far. There’s an interesting article in NY Times “Wake Up. Wash Face. Do Routine. Now Paint.” about artists and their routines. The Artists Way by Julia Cameron once helped me jumpstart daily art activity. Then, it was in addition to attending art college and my class work. I’m hoping that the book by Carol Lloyd, Creating a Life Worth Living and delaying the acquisition of a MacBook (currently in the process of selling my PowerBook) will help me achieve my objective.
