This was me and it still happens sometimes. I don't like it when it does and I know it's not good for us.
So, even thought that's not a paint brush, it is a part of our lives as artists.
Here's to your artistic abundance.
Totally understandable, obscenely frustrating and
just plain sad. The escape from burnout is important to our creative output.
There was a time when I worked until the early morning hours all the time and I was burnt to a crisp at one point. Of course, in today's world, print, cost and demand force us to make exceptions; not to even whisper the infamous "D" word. Deadline.
One of the ways that I have been able to to more and cut my time doing it is to block out some power hours. I focus only on that thing that I am doing and then I just go ahead and do it.
Creation is often, well, most of the time not and on - off button but when running a business there are things that we can do more effectively so we have more time for art.
Maybe you take care of your administrative work on Mondays and tie that in with marketing and sales. If you have a deadline for your art, you can chunk out days of the week when the kids are in school or you know that you will not be disturbed.
While this a brief post, it's a reminder that we need to take time for our business so we don't burn out on our art.
Have a great day.
