How I drop into my work quickly…

I’m in the studio today with a painting I haven’t worked on in a while. To help me drop back into it quickly, here’s something that I do, that you might want to try too. I unplug from my phone and other distractions and set a timer for 20-30 minutes. It gets me out of my head and fired up to make big moves fast.

Watch here, at high speed, how this painting changes in 30 minutes.

A timer is super effective if you’re short on time, too. So give it a try. Take the time seriously, set a timer, and go for it! I’m never sure where the work is going, but I trust that I’m finding my way. Experimenting and staying loose is the best way forward.

How do you show up and drop into your practice? Let me know in the comments.

On this week’s episode of the Art2Life Podcast, I’m joined by Adam Rosendahl, a facilitator of this cool company called, Late Nite Art. He’s an incredible musician and an artist, but his real art is bringing people together and creating connections through powerful art events. His music and playlists are amazing, too! Join me this Wednesday; you’ll be inspired! Click here to listen to and subscribe to the Art2Life Podcast.

Have the best Sunday!
