I finished this painting last night...day 75.
It's been so interesting participating in the 100 days project this year. It has really taken over my life. It's a huge commitment. But I'm not complaining. I'm loving it. I find that I am looking forward to my evenings spent painting at my kitchen table. I love the feeling of concentration and immersion. I don't love every painting I have done while on the project, in fact there is one I really don't particularly like at all. But I feel like I'm getting closer to painting the way I want to paint.
I remember a discussion with a friend, years ago, who wanted to learn to paint, and we decided that she should paint 20 paintings, and by the end she would surely have improved a lot and have found her sense of painting style. At the time I remember thinking that I ought to do that myself, but I never gave myself the time to do so.
Well, I think I'm ready to take up that challenge. 6 complete so far. Do I have the commitment needed to carry on painting daily, after the 100 days project is over and work towards painting 20 paintings and testing that theory from years ago.
I think the time is right. I want to.
