Morning Paintings #151-160

Time for a new batch of Morning Paintings.

As I'm writing this I'm nearing the end of my fourth sketchbook and when I look at these sketchbooks I'm a bit stunned that I filled them with so many paintings. How the hell did that happen? page at a time.

As simple as that sounds this practice is really teaching me about small but consistent steps leading to a bigger whole. Taking a little time in a day to paint is not all that challenging, but when you do it day after day after day, you actually end up with a collection of paintings and full sketchbooks. It's pretty exciting actually. ;-)

Here are paintings #151 tot 160:

#151 - Flowers on Green

#152 - Summer

#153 - Blue Skies

#154 - True to Form

#155 - Three Little Words

#156 - Good Afternoon

#157 - Flowers on Blue

#158 - Sunrise

#159 - Flourish

#160 - Flowers in a Field

My paintings always show my preferences of that exact moment. I simply paint what I want. In this case I wanted lots of mandalas and lettering, so that's what I did. It's nice to just sit down and paint whatever you feel like and not really care about repetition or be afraid of trying something new. It's all good.

Wishing you all a wonderful and artsy weekend!
