About

There is great satisfaction in doing things entirely for your own sake. I am very happy when I am able to express myself through my art. It helps get me in the right headspace (with awesome music and tasty snacks involved). I spend a lot of time browsing reddit, r/ArtPorn, and other art channels (sadly, hardly ever a participant, but maybe that will change), and I get instant gratification from viewing artwork by others.

I am challenging myself to dedicate time to doing something I love by completing one painting a week (new painting every Thursday). I think this sort of long-term commitment will outweigh any other form of simple immediate gratification, and I get to continue doing something I love. That in itself, is the ultimate satisfaction.

1 new painting/artwork every Thursday.

  1. I like your idea of a self imposed deadline of a Thursday to produce your art . Are you finding that you are able to produce something every week and what happens if you arent happy it ?

    1. Hey there. Producing art is something I’m most passionate about; it’s important to me to keep doing that it – which is why I want to make time. Not only does this project motivate me to create more, it also allows me to express what I’m thinking in ways I can never with words. And to answer your last question, very truthfully, I will always feel like I can do more, but I think that’s the point of art and the imperfectness of it. To me, it’s similar to a person growing and learning – you will never be done with new experiences and learning.

      1. There is no reason a great artist can’t be a productive artist , starving in a garrett and self destructing in a tortured soul kinda groove seems so unneccesary these days .I look forward to following your process and progress . If you ever start to dread your Thursday deadline then it’s counterproductive but you sound like you’ve got tonnes of art inside you just bursting to get out , thankyou for sharing , I for one am fascinated .

    Similarly, I’ve challenged myself to make one garment per week. Although I haven’t fully committed, I have published the end result every Thursday as well. Looking forward to seeing your paintings!
