ORIGINAL COPY POSTED ON INSTAGRAM DURING THE CHALLENGE
Someone in the desert told me that being an artist doesn’t mean you’re creative every single day. It means you’re committed to the creative process daily. ⠀
And while it’s equally important for me to tackle projects or series of paintings during this 365 that mean a lot to me so I can become captivated in what I paint, it’s just as important to give myself breaks of total non-attachment to the outcome (especially when I’m getting sick and know my body needs rest!!)⠀
Don’t not do your thing when you have no more f*#@^ left to give. Do it anyway and re-frame it as a non-attached dedication to the process. You might just discover a whole new idea or style in your arsenal.⠀

Oh, and hey – just like that we’re 1/3 of the way through the challenge! 😜 Thanks for joining me this far!
