Any time I can fit some painting into my schedule. Being retired also helps.

Being retired now, I paint every day. But when still working, I painted more on weekends than weekdays.

I paint all the time now I'm retired, less at weekends as I still do all the things I did when working!

I was going to say I paint pretty much every day since I retired, but that would be misleading. I painted most days when I was working.

It was always a relief to do anything not requiring coordination with and approval by anyone else, and no one asking me to "cut a few corners" and trade quality for speed.

Yes, I do paint on weekends.


pmwalt01 Jul 2024 3:39 p.m. PST

I paint on the weekends and during the week. Being retired has advantages.

I try to paint every day.

Being retired, I eat when I'm hungry, drink when I'm dry and paint whenever i want :)

Martin Rapier01 Jul 2024 11:40 p.m. PST

Rarely, seems the weekend is pretty busy for me even being retired.

rustymusket02 Jul 2024 4:05 a.m. PST

Being retired now, I paint when I can and feel like painting, though I am painting less these days.

bobm195902 Jul 2024 4:27 a.m. PST

I try to do some every day, short sessions but often. I'm on a slow glide towards retirement but don't know whether that will increase or decrease painting time…

For about 30 years I struggled to paint on any day. Finding time was the issue because of raising children, then especially these last few years with work being 50-60 hours per week.
Now I am finding time to paint just about every day. I am building up my endurance and slowly getting my hobby area cleaned up and organized. Life is good

Yes – paint mostly on weekends but sometimes during the week

Perris070702 Jul 2024 7:41 a.m. PST

Almost every day, so yes.

Personal logo Sgt Slag Supporting Member of TMP02 Jul 2024 7:55 a.m. PST

Weekends, primarily, but I also paint on weeknights. Cheers!

I paint with The Weekend …


(It was really hard to get the AI to compose this, so close enough.)

No weekends are for outside fun. Riding the motorcycle, playing with my kid etc. etc.

Yes. I've tried to paint – even if it's just a little bit – every day for decades, and at the expense of sleep when I had no time. Call it therapy.


Oberlindes Sol LIC Supporting Member of TMP04 Jul 2024 1:34 p.m. PST

Mostly weekends.

Blackhorse MP07 Jul 2024 1:14 p.m. PST

I only paint on days that end in Y.
