I have set myself a goal to paint every day - generally in the evening after work. On most days I finish a 5 x 7 painting. Doing a small painting every day has helped me get over my inertia about painting. It also frees me to paint more subjects - if I am painting something new tomorrow I can experiment tonight. I have found so far that each day I see things that I want to paint. This has caused me to take a lot more pictures during the day with my iPhone.
