Working on projects for clients can take up more time than you expect. At least it has for me over the past week. I have yet to miss a day of art-making, but the home stretch of the commissions ate up more time than I thought it would.
Fortunately, I’ve finished the first round of private commissions and actually made the time for a bit of practice today instead of working exclusively on a finished product.
Back to the drawing board. 🙂

What went well?
I finished my commissions! Commissions with a deadline are rough, especially when the deadline creeps up on you. Now I have the time and space to create at my own pace. I just feel relieved today.
What didn’t go so well and what can I learn from that?
By the time I finished my commissions I was a bit low on energy. I think I need to be working on my practice first every day, even if I have a tight deadline. I also need to be more mindful of when my deadlines are.
