Left to my own devices I will draw or paint every day. This always leads to burnout. I've been there many times. By never stopping you interfere with some natural cycle. Enter sweet reality. A sons band competition, a daughters field hockey game, a sudden illness, something will distract. I used to feel frustrated and often angry at these distractions. Is it possible that the spirit in a successful work is there not in spite of the hardships but because of them?
