I am always giving myself deadlines. Then I break them, I get distracted and start something else, or forget about them. After all, what am I going to do to myself? Fire me? I tried that, I just kept showing up so I was rehired.
The only deadlines that I adhere to are when outside forces are involved. An upcoming show, a commission, a promise to a friend. These are the deadlines I can stick to.
In light of this I have joined a FaceBook Group, "February Art Daily". The premiss is that you make a piece of art each day in February. That right, a piece of art each day for 28 days. Just do it, no editing, no deep exploration into whether or not it is deep and meaningful, or God Forbid! BAD. Just make a piece and send a photo to the group page.
It is an open group that is also welcoming of people who want to look at art. No selling, no harsh criticism, just open sharing. So, if your interested you may also join the group.
Now that I'm committed, let's see if I can make the deadline.
