My painting today...

For a very long time, I've been wanting to do a 'painting a day', like so many fellow art bloggers in interwebland. I think about it constantly, attempt it frequently, and fail usually. Until today. 

Started and finished a painting in an afternoon.

No school today, kids are all (sorta) dressed, fed and happy. House is, well, worse than yesterday, better than Monday. ;)

I'm so excited. Yes, I see much, much room for improvement -- but, this is not a-painting-in-all-my-waking-hours-til-I-pull-my-hair-out. One day. :)

Overall, I'm very pleased with the experience. And I will try desperately to not touch it again. Even at midnight when the mistakes are shouting at me from another room. 

My real life prevents me from actually doing this every day, but maybe, just maybe, I can do a 'painting a day' once a week. 

Keep an eye out for more! 
(When I've caught my breath, and have a few of these under my belt, I'll be adding them to my etsy shop.)
