Oil, 6" x 6"
We made it through the first week! Yay! It's Day Eight and I am only slightly sleep deprived so that's a good thing, right?
January is the perfect time to take on a Challenge like this. It's the best time to start new habits for the year and painting everyday is one I really want to continue. The only problem I am having is I have a lot of other new things for the year I would like to do too. This week I started a new financial reporting system for my art business, a new organizational system in my office and I am redoing two of my websites. Plus I am working on my two books again.
So that's really why I am sleep deprived.
Plus, January is "health month" in our house so every January I schedule every possible dr. appt that needs to happen for the year. Currently I have five dr. appts on my calendar. So, if you are behind on a yearly physical, mammogram, teeth cleaning or dermatology appt, schedule it now!
Today's painting was inspired from my collection of photos from Hawaii. I could paint from my photos from the Hawaiian islands for the next ten years. I really do have that many photos! I love the darker palette in this painting.
