One painting a day. Almost

Whenever I paint, I often get mired in the details. After reading a book called Daily Painting by Carole Marine (love her work), I decided to try some daily paintings.

I confess I haven’t kept it up, but I know I’ll try again because the exercise was exhilarating. I did each of these paintings in oil in less than two hours (the little silver pitcher in 45 minutes) — no time to get picky.

The lesson to myself is that I should do this every single day! It’s by doing that we get better.
