Moms who Paint
My daughter Priscilla is a mom who paints. Moms who paint need to be flexible, they need to be able to paint whenever they can (like between naps) but setting aside some time to paint is important. Being prepared is also important. If you have little children, some sort of playpen that can be set up in your painting area so that the child can see you, works well. Priscilla attends some of the "Open" figure/portrait sessions, but she also sets up and paints still life in my studio. A backpack and a playpen become part of a mom/artist's painting equipment.
