      An interesting experiment to change one's schedule this way.

      I feel like I've seen a working schedule infographic of famous writers, artists, etc. and their sample work schedules before. This could certainly fit into that.

      One thing is certain thought, that the time of waking up is probably more a function of the individual person. How you spend your time is another consideration.

      “Without great solitude, no serious work is possible.” ― Picasso

      “Everybody has the same energy potential. The average person wastes his in a dozen little ways. I bring mine to bear on one thing only: my paintings, and everything else is sacrificed to it...myself included.” ― Picasso

      Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up. —Picasso

      I love that he uses this print of Pablo Picasso's Don Quixote to visually underline this post in which he must feel as if he's "tilting at windmills".

    1. Picasso created Guernica to express his outrage at the bombing of the undefended town of Guernica during the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). German bombers, supported by Spanish Nationalist leader Francisco Franco, destroyed the Basque town on April 26, 1937. There were many casualties, mostly women, children, and elderly people. Guernica, a town with little strategic importance, was attacked by the Germans to test the effects of bombing civilian targets in an effort to demoralize the enemy.

      Pablo Picasso took a huge stand in history when he painted the feelings of loss during the bombings in Spain. This painting resemblance the pain and loss the city of Guernica felt when they where bombed unfairly and brutally. Pablo Picasso felt this disloyalty and painted it with grey-ish tones and pieced together piles of bodies which demonstrates this pain. He took a huge stand in history while painting this painting by creating a painting that touches heart of millions.
