    Try this. Problem is, you will loose all your previous hobbies and your job. But hey, I hope I could help you.

    Complaining about having too much time is similar to complaining about too much money; you're going to find few who are sympathetic.

    And it certainly depends on how serious you are about art, but I'm pretty sure there's enough there to fill several dozen man-hours per day. Of course, it's also important to fill your visual library, so going out and observing is also worthwhile.

    Play Warhammer 40K!!!

    If you have more than 500$ to spare, of course

    Now seriously, have you tried modelmaking and sculpture? its nice, relaxing, and as a plus you are making your skills grow (in sculpture at least).

    If you're serious, look for something remotely art related that you can leave sit for a while if you have to...killing two birds with one stone kind of thing...

    Scratchbuilding models

    Quilting or something like that

    Beads

    Doing something like assemblage art where you hoard shit of all kinds and assemble it into a piece of "art." I quoted that because you can be as serious as you want with it and actually produce true sculpture.

    Make books/bookbinding

    Make block prints or similar

    Make paper (it's easy)

    Make your own art supplies. (Not hard)

    If you live near a woods, etc., drift through it and find things that are interesting or easy to work with, and then make something out of them. Walking sticks and fantasy weapons from saplings, that kind of things. It would give you some practical knowledge of how people without power tools had to work, which is good to know if you're into fantasy and period art.
