I once went a year without creating any significant kind of art. It really hit hard when my wife told me that "If I had your talent, I would do it all the time". I decided then, that I would take steps to force myself to do more art. With the many art contest available through magazines, websites and even county fairs, there is usually some new deadline to meet, and sometimes a theme to work towards. Having a deadline is helpful for me and the primary reason for entering competitions. Winning a cash prize or ribbon is just icing on the cake.
