This morning was pretty much my ideal day. As is my habit, before rising, post the post and answer the comments. Today an inquiry for the painting resulted in a sale in the first five minutes (that doesn’t happen every day).
Off to the beach. A jaunty walk through the national park (aka the Jane Austen Field in the photo) to the beach. Back to compose another painting in the blue mood series (boats and harbour) then lunch. Paint. Coffee and contemplation, digest and savour. Paint. Reflect. Paint. Dinner. Business and planning. Buzzing thoughts and plans, try to sleep.
Ideal days are rare, but a timetable for the day and a goal helps defray the tendency for other urgent matters to consume and spit you out. When you know what your ideal day looks like you can build a routine to achieve it more often. A solid routine is the bedrock of all success.
Richard Claremont - artist. A peek into my studio. How I think. How I paint. How I run my art business. Bite sized daily chunks of goodness. Just me talking aloud, really. Join me for a chat over a cuppa.
