I work better under a schedule-Quakertown artist

Things have been very quiet in my studio since the shutdown in mid March. I had ALL this time to work on my projects but I couldn’t get motivated.

I usually have a very busy schedule and for YEARS I have said: “If only my life slowed down. I’d get more done….” well life DID slow down. A LOT. And I am getting less done that I had previously!

Then I got a message asking for a commission. Requests came in. A spark started. I got my fire back! I didn’t realize that the structure I complained about, I needed all along.

Don’t get me wrong: I properly needed the rest. I am grateful for life slowing down. But it also made me grateful for my busy life.

It also started to get me excited to promote myself again. I felt bad promoting art during a pandemic. But you know what? That is what I should have been doing. It took some requests to get me to realize that.


I guess maybe I felt life was on hold for a while. But life never stops. It may chamge but never stop.

I found during these crazy times, I am learning a lot about myself.

What have you learned during this time?


Keep on being creative,
