Fall Sweaters






10 x 10 Oil on Canvas


"Dog" gone it, I'm behind. This is painting number five in my quest to paint 100. My start date was September 1st so by October 1st I should have at least 8 done, I'm not worried though, the 100 will get done.  When I started I was all worried about commiting to the commitment, well, silly me.   I've been asked why 100 paintings in a year as a goal, I've read and I've heard that when you do that much painting something magical happens with your painting abilities. I'm sure this is similiar to when you practice anything, you get better at it.  But I was also curious what would happen to me, my psyche. So I'm happy to report that there is more giddey-up in my step and more giddey-up in my go. Amazing what happens when I allowed myself to do the thing that I love to do. I'll let you know further developments in my psyche experiment, but as of now I highly recommend this commitment thing.
