For some reason I like to do count-downs……. count the days until we go on vacation, count the days until Christmas, count the days until I’ll reach my goal-weight (no doubts there). I’ve even been known to count exactly how many tenths of a pound I need to lose per day to lose 10 pounds before our Grandson’s wedding in April. I know, intense.
But real fun is counting down the days until I’ve finished my “30 PAINTINGS IN 30 DAYS CHALLENGE! So you’ll know…there are only 16 days left..i.e., 16 more painting subjects to select which is very hard to do; 16 more rough composition sketches, (change my mind on at least 7 of them and start over), and finally actually paint….16 more paintings. Hmmmm! I’m not so sure how much fun it is to count those stats.
Now, it’s time to get back to the sketch pad, the easel, the paints and the blank panels. Ever onward!
