I'm pushing myself to sit at my desk and paint... even though I'd love to be out "doing stuff".. sometimes it feels hard for me to sit still. The weather is beautiful here.. I can't be "snowed in"..and although I was "rained in" a couple of days last week, I still feel like moving rather than sitting.
My Instagram followers motivate me... and where I only get a small amount of likes on Facebook... most of my images creep up towards 100 "likes" on Instgram... that makes me feel good about creating.. I struggle with this a lot as an artist.. there is no salary increase every year, and there is not a performance review (of which I was used to before I left my original career 10 years ago).
