Picasso created over 20,000 pieces of art in his lifetime (though by some counts its over 50,000). That ends up being 1 piece of art a day, for the entire duration of his life. He lived to be 91 years old.
He is also considered the top ranked artist based on sales at auctions. Vincent Van Gogh however, well he only sold one painting during his entire life.
But here’s the thing. He only painted for nine years, you know, because he died and all that. So during nine short years, he created some 900 paintings.
So basically, every four days he created another piece.
And he didn’t even start painting until he was 28 years old.
You’re not too old to start something new. And you’re certainly not too busy to create fantastic things.
