Create Every Day!

I love this wonderful story about a man who painted 365 paintings in 365 days! During the year of this project, he fell in love, experienced the break-up of that relationship, had a serious biking accident, endured months of recovery and learned a friend had cancer. He also discovered that painting helped him deal with these challenges.

When asked how he managed to create a complete painting every day, he said:

I slept less and less. I found time to paint in the morning before work. 10 minutes here; ten minutes there. I became good at just painting whenever I could with whatever free time I had. I would bring my paints with me wherever I went even when it was just a dinner party. Because people understood my 365 day project they were accepting in the fact that I had to paint. I became very good at not making a mess with my paints so I would be allowed in people’s homes.

Check out the article, which includes some of his paintings and the stories behind them!

And for more inspiration, read my previous posts about Jonathan Mann’s year of writing a song every day here and here.

I’ll help you slay your Perfectionism Dragon,
Herd your Inner Critics into a soundproof room,
Send your Procrastination Monster whimpering back to his cave,
And defuse all your creative blocks.
