In her book Carol advocates completing one small painting per day, or as frequently as possible. I am inspired to give it a try! My usual approach is to start a whole bunch of paintings, and work on them all over the course of whatever-time-I-have-available between workshops. I never, NEVER, put pressure on myself to finish anything, but allow paintings to come to maturity in their own time. And they do, if I am paying attention. I've started working on 6"x6" panels, and have completed several in the last several days. Of course I've made many beginnings, but the practice is to finish one per day, and this makes a greats counterpoint to my usual practice.
