Working on commissions today and yesterday. This is another blast from the past. A few Christmases ago I was fortunate enough to receive 6 gift commissions the second week of November of that year. I decided I would not be able to deliver unless I planned the work on each painting, on paper, one day at a time, one hour at a time. It worked! Every painting was shipped literally 3 days before Christmas! I was exhausted but I learned that if I focused on what I wanted—in this case completing each commission on time—instead of what I didn't want, everything fell into place.
