It's day 200 of 365 days of daily painting and I am happily exploring watercolor. This is a luminous and unpredictable medium, I love the loose freshness and I get a thrill every time the colors touch and change. In preparation for today's milestone I went through about 170 paintings, sorting them into 4 piles, discard, save, use the other sides, and add pastel. The biggest stack by far, was the use the other side pile, which is fine with me. I don't expect to make 365 keepers. This project has become about turning the page each day and starting again. I just paint. I try not to focus on the final product, and concentrate on the process. I work quickly and make as many paintings as I can finish in one session and post one on Instagram. The next day I do it again. That is my only goal for this project, to paint everyday, 200 down 165 to go. Follow my Instagram - Maryann Didriksen to see how it goes.
