Sometimes the simplest solution to a problem can be hidden from us. I've struggled for years to find time to do some art, then get down because I don't do anything, which keeps me from doing anything, as it goes. Artist Doug TenNapal wrote some suggestions that I took to heart. He said just commit to 20 min., 5 days a week. I thought, I can do that, and 20 min a day is a lot more than I normally do. I have the blessing of being able to get up early and have some uninterrupted time before I go to my day job. Now, I always felt as a good Christian, you have to have your bible time & prayer 1st thing or you suck. It is a great thing to acknowledge and thank the Lord before you do anything, I agree. Why can't I do that in the shower, or driving to work, or going potty? I do at many of those times when I can pause and remember why I'm here, and thank my God for the great blessings he's given me. Doing something because I'm "supposed to" honestly takes the fun and life out of it, and I love a God who is fun and full of life, and doesn't care that I praise him in the can, as long as I'm praising him. SO anyway, that's why I never thought of using morning time for drawing time. Having a religious spirit. So far, I'm happy with the results, and I'm only 2 days in. Let me know what you think! Tommy
