As I mentioned in an earlier post, I have resumed my hobby of tap dancing. However, I discovered having to go out into my garage to practice my steps was taking a big chunk out of my painting time. After watching some YouTube videos, I learned there was a tap dancing mini floor you could buy to practice and not destroy your knees, tile or hardwood floors.
A trip to Home Depot for a piece of plywood which I placed over my yoga mat provided a great tap dancing practice spot in my art studio. Now when I can't figure out the correct color or composition for a painting I am working on, I can take a tap dance break until inspiration strikes.
It's really important to step back from your painting at intervals and return a bit later to view your work with fresh eyes.
