I would just like to start out saying, remember 2009? When I had 6 posts the entire year? Well, it is only July 8th and this will be my 6th post for the month. And I think I should also point out that this will be the 4th day in a row that I have posted.
The other thing that I have done for the last 4 days in a row is also pretty exciting as well: I have not only painted, but completed a painting each day.
This is pretty huge for me (I have never had this kind of time on my hands before), and I am really liking the momentum and excitement I am feeling; so, I have been inspired. I am going to start a PAD. I know of a lot of photographers who have PADs, or Photo-A-Day blogs. But this one will be different. I am challenging myself to a Painting-A-Day. I know. That's a big commitment. And I think I will just have to see how long I can do it. My goal is the end of the summer, but now that I am home everyday, summer life is pretty much becoming the norm. So we shall see.
So, the rules will be simple. I will post a new painting (a sketch or drawing can also count) every day on this blog. I am only saying this to confirm it to myself--that doesn't mean I have to complete a painting everyday, but to stay caught up I will pretty much need to do that. I have about 3-4 that I can post right now, but I will hold onto that lead to give myself a little wiggle room.
I can't make any promises to anyone but myself. So self, wish me luck!
I hope you enjoy today's painting: Lupine, 12"x9", watercolor
