I have to remind myself that one of the great benefits of not creating artwork for a living but rather as a hobby is that I don’t have to be creating new stuff all the time. I have the freedom not to. It’s easy to feel guilty when I haven’t painted or drawn in a long time, but that’s not what it’s about. For me it’s about enjoying the gifts I’ve been given and forcing myself to draw isn’t enjoyable.
There’s also a place for discipline, but that’s another post. 🙂
