Does your art practice ever feel like another to-do on your list? If so, it’s time for a reframe. It’s easy to forget that our practice is a juicy opportunity to be completely free! So rather than a task on the list, think of your practice as the time you get to spend doing whatever you want!
It’s exciting to think of the freedom and difference this time brings to an ordinary day, so it’s essential to be thoughtful about when to plan it. Consider the optimal time to get the most out of this refreshing opportunity and make it happen! When’s the best time for your art practice?

In this week’s Art2Life podcast, I have a moving conversation with British painter, Edward Povey. Povey’s phenomenal work can loosely be described as “emotional realism.” His method of working with models is like nothing I’ve ever heard, leading to a discussion deeply seeped in the topic of relationships — with ourselves, with each other, and the world. I hope you’ll join me this Wednesday for a new episode.
Have an amazing Sunday! Nicholas
