Painting Tip of the Day: sometimes we are under the impression that when we sit down to paint that it has to be for hours or to the exclusion of everything else. Not so. Try to sit down for an hour, or even half an hour. A lot of times I will paint for 30 minutes then get up and do something else like fold laundry or some other chore. Then go back to paint some more. Not only does it let me get other things done around the house, it lets me take a step back from what I am working on and see what is working or not working, so that I come from a new perspective. Try it. Painting everyday doesn’t have to require a whole day commitment, just a commitment to put in a little time everyday.
