Need More Time?
Oh, honey, I hear you! For years, while I was making my living creating custom artworks on commission for private clients, my constant lament was:
“I wish I had time to make art for me again!”
I was so frustrated! So resentful! I got into the business of being an artist because I loved making art, yet here I was, never making any art, unless someone paid me to do it!
If only I had more time (I thought), then I could get back to creating.
Years went by.
Until February 1, 2011, when I was doing an interview with an artist for a course I was creating, called the Thriving Artists Project*.
That artist mentors other artists who aspire to fine art gallery careers, and guess what — they get stuck avoiding their art just as much as anyone else!
In fact, she had taken to telling them,
“If you can’t spend 15 minutes a day on your art, you’re making an excuse.”
I was so busted!
It was in that moment that I realized (much to my chagrin..) that all of my complaining about not having time was really an excuse. After all, anyone can spare fifteen minutes, right?
I couldn’t imagine that fifteen minutes would amount to much, but hey, it was better than nothing. So I gave it a try.
Much to my surprise, fifteen minutes a day changed my life.

More often than not, “I don’t have time” boils down to some variation on “I’m scared,” or “I really want this, but I feel like creative play is a waste of time!”
