I have been quietly immersed in daily painting this year. No speeches, legislation, or controversial appointments. However, many people are saying that I do watch much too much cable news.
What do I have to show for just about one third of my year long project?
I have a couple of decent oil paintings, two acrylic paintings, many watercolor studies, one sale and a small pile of art carnage. Committing to daily painting has helped me to focus and solidify my studio practice while allowing me to try new things. It's just enough structure and it encourages play and studious exploration.
I started in January with the 30 in 30 challenge, making 30 small landscape paintings.
For February I decided to continue on and work on 365 days of painting. With all the art making, I put writing on hold posting only one blog post.
In March I participated in two painting projects, A Slice of Life and Into -Yellow.
April - So far 115 days in, I have found a comfortable pace to my work. On the downside I haven't had time for documenting or writing about the project. That’s OK, there is always tomorrow. To see what I am up to daily, follow me on Instagram.
