~Do a little each day, and embrace the changes~

8″ x 10″ in. Acrylic Painting with Kauai Sand on Mixed media paper.
I challenged myself to paint for 31 days straight to see what I can produce. To my surprise I found the challenge quite exciting. I realized through this journey I learned discipline by committing each day to a new project. What I also learned is that I don’t have to finish a project each day, that I should just commit to painting everyday and document my progress.
Toward the end of April I had to head back to the east coast for a family emergency. I tried to continue to paint everyday but found it too much for me to complete. So I took time off. I stayed in New York for over a month and did work on a couple of small paintings. I did paint but I stopped posting. Now hear we are the end of June and I want to get back into the swing of things. So my plan is to get back into some type of creative project each day. This should include a painting a day as well. I want to continue to add to my gallery of paintings to help improve and document my progress. I will start this on July 1st because I want to figure out how I am going to do this. My main goal is to improve and learn how to paint better. Becoming a daily painter is exciting because who knows what I will paint next. Haha
The Daily Painting Challenge
~Baby steps will lead to great achievements~
My daily painting journey will include a variety of things to include painting using acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, and oil paints.
What better way to learn what you like is to challenge yourself. Not sure what I will paint but that is my challenge.
I will continue to document my progress daily as well. Again no pressure, haha.
I know this will be work in progress and a huge commitment to myself. But I do believe I need to continue this challenge to motivate myself and to help me grow as an artist. I figure if I paint daily I will only improve as time goes by.
