how to become marvelously productive artist marketing help jill rumley


Imagine you’ve scheduled time to create and when you get in front of your easel.


No inspiration!

What strategies do you use to find your inspiration?

Do you pull out a sketchbook and doodle?
Do you scroll through your photos for that picture you took the last time you traveled?
Do you go to your favorite YouTube channel and watch a painting technique video?

My point is, you don’t give up on having your “creative time” even when inspiration doesn’t come.
