    Thank you to everyone who posted. My thinking on this matter is very simple. If you want to get better at what you do you must practice, find time and be dedicated. This is true in all things. It takes time to find a way to make time. “Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”

    Good afternoon,
    Was thinking about how abstract artists plan their day. Share the following with others on this group by answering four questions:
    How often do you paint?

    Do you have a studio?
    Where do you market your art?

    Thank you for participating! Have a great day!

    • Hi Diane!
      I paint mostly on weekends, certainly not as much as I’d like. Currently not actively marketing my art — a holiday show, instagram. But plan to start jumping into that real soon.
      How about you?

    • Not often enough. Market on instagram and art shows. My studio is in my home.

    • Thank you for asking, Diane. Lately I was working on my writings more then on paintings. I was preparing for market by reshaping my statement, story, photographs of my paintings, website…. I also prepared my portfolio book and all nice details needed for professional approach. Mostly I use Instagram, Saatchi Art, and a few membership forum…[Read more]

    • Thanks for asking Diane 🙂 I tend to go through spurts of painting excessively and then through periods of not painting at all either due to schedule or creative block. I’m currently not in painting mode. I paint in the morning and as the seasons are changing I have trouble adjusting.

      I currently market my art on Instagram and Facebook but I…[Read more]

    • I’ve finally cleaned up my studio space which is a room in my basement so I am trying to use it more. Even though it’s got a window the light isn’t great but I’m hoping to repaint the walls white and add some better lighting to make it better to work in. I try to paint as often as I can but that usually equates to 3 or 4 times a week for a few…[Read more]

    • I lost my studio space, so I am able to create as much as I would like. My pieces are large scale so I need a lot of room. Trying to look into studio space or talk my husband into creating me some space in our home. Art keeps me grounded, but I have not created anything in the last year. Can’t wait to get started, have so many ideas.
